You can hike or drive. We drove right to the viewpoint. It's on big boulders you can climb around on. The views are fantastic. Mt. Baker is on one side and Anacortes is on the other. It is so easy to get to. Of the 3 parks we visited on our recent trip, we put this one as #1. (Washington... More

A quick little side trip from downtown Anacortes puts you "on top of the world"! The cape offers territorial views in all directions. You love it.

Beautiful place on top of a mountain looking down on multiple views. Just stand there and turn a 360 ,so much to take in and see. Relaxing alone or with kids under supervision as there are rock bluffs without barriers. You see the bay,ocean,town,marina,refineries, mountain ranges,ships and ferry boats.

If you're staying in Anacortes, this is a must see. Simple drive and the view is amazing! You can sit on the rocks or walk around - it gives you a 360* view of the town. Plus you might see a family of deer on your drive up the hill.

This isn't really much of a park. Basically a parking lot and some rocks to climb on. The attraction is the great views. To the east is Mount Baker, to the west Anacortes and the San Juans.

From the top you have full view of the mountains, water, marina's as far as your eyes can see it is beautiful. Beautiful park and viewing area. So happy we were able to go there.

Favorite place for visitors, guests and locals. Steep twisty ride up to the cliff. Wonderful views of Mt Baker, the fuel tankers if they are in port, marinas, Fildalgo Bay and town of Anacortes. Beautiful on a sunny day

Great view of the marina and part of the city of Anacortes. You can even see part of the Rosario Strait on the other side of Fidalgo Island. It's only a short drive up to the top and it's well worth it.

Short drive from downtown Anacortes. Definitely worth the jaunt! 360 degree view of city, bay, and Cascades is a perfect spot for some amazing photos. (Even got some shots of deer as we left the park.) Lots of rocks for climbing (even saw a creative young girl using a rock as a "slide".)
