This is what the Celts called a thin place, where heaven and earth meet. Here rich farmland, thick forest, and the ocean meet in one place. Hike the Bluff trail from the small parking lot at the foot of Ebey's Landing Road up along the farmland, up the dune, and across to the sandy trail back down to the beach, Then hike the beach back to the parking area. I takes a family about 1.5 to 1.75 hours to do the whole hike. During the entire hike, you have spectacular views of the Sound all the way across to Port Townsend. You see the Olympic Mountains on clear days. You watch the ships and ferries sail the passage. Eagles frequently appear on your journey. It is our favorite place on Whidbey Island. A ($10 good all year for all State Parks) Discover Pass is required if you park in the lot; otherwise park along the road as many people do.
