I was googling the best place to watch the sunset in Anacortes, and this came up. It's such a great spot whether you hike or drive up, the top of the park has amazing views and is a great place to watch the sun set.

You drive up to about 1200 feet elevation and a short hike later you have the most spectacular views. Be careful of the ledges and cliffs obviously if you have pets keep them on the leash and small children by the hand. There were rock...More
