Can't beat the view from this lighthouse. The trails are well-maintained. Nice picnic area too. I wasn't lucky enough to see any whales this time, but that's OK.
If you go to San Juan Island, this is a very pleasant sight to see. Park and walk along trails to viewing area for whale watching when in season. Open water, stunning mountains, pacific padrone trees with curling red bark. Gorgeous! Walked over to lighthouse and spoke with volunteers doing restoration. Further walking lead to a lime kiln in service... More
Perhaps we were the unlucky ones to visit a state park during Government Shutdown. We were disappointed to see the closed park. Our $30.00 Discovery pass had been wasted. In the least, the park operators could have left some printed information for the public in such circumstances.
Beautiful park with lots of hiking trails and lovely views. But the best part was seeing a pod of 27 Orcas swim by, just offshore. We even saw one jump out of the water. Normally you have to be on a boat to see Orcas this close!
The walk was great, but make sure you take good walking shoes. And do the full walk if you have time...there's lots to see and it's very scenic. The signage and the ranger were very informative.
easy hiking, cute light house, interesting lime kiln from the 1800s, we saw a deer very close up, and some porpoise out in the water. sound like it might be a good whale watching place during the season. cost $10 to park.
We stayed there for five hours watching the boats, seals, porpoises, but no whales. It did not matter, it was just a perfect afternoon, sitting and walking along the cliffs, do not miss this location
The interpretive center actually closes sometime after Labor Day but you can still visit all of the wonderful park attractions. The staff also gives lighthouse tours on Saturday evenings until around the second week in September. We missed the last one for the season by one day. If you walk down the trail to the lighthouse and spend some time... More
We hoped for a whale sighting but didn't get lucky. We had an overcast day and stopped by twice. The seas we very calm. We hiked around the lighthouse. Great views if the weather had been better. Very uncrowned and quiet. Worth a trip
