We have been under the bridge several times whale watching, so it was cool to see the bridge and the pass up close. Such a lovely site.

We chose several trails to explore. They were in great shape, we has some sunshine, and the bathrooms were even open. Who could ask for more on a beautiful spring afternoon?

Cannot get enough of this location. Traveled under the bridge in a ship, over many times, walked across and under. Hiked to the beach. Leave about 2 to 3 hours to visit this location so that you will not have to rush. With a breeze blowing most of the time, you can easily visit and stay safe pandemic or not. Best time is evening in the summer months for the views around 6 to 10pm is best June , July August.

We're no strangers to this magnificant park (the state's second most-popular after Mount Rainier). I recommend that people drive into the park proper and park there, instead of in the tiny lot on the bridge's south side. The path from the beach in the main park to the bridge is well-maintained (although not for wheelchairs) and the steepness isn't too bad even for flat-landers. Often, people have parked along the side of the road on the bridge's north side. That's not possible right now because of workers painting the bridge. The paint job has terrible signage for the many pedestrians. We walk halfway across the east side of the bridge (in the fog) only to see that it was closed to walkers because of the paint job. Then, on the other side of the bridge, the pedestrian path abruptly ends with construction work, and you don't know if you can bypass it. Simply terrible signage by the Washington DOT in a highly traveled area. What's worse is that too many jerks assemble in the south parking lot without their masks, and then try walking the bridge maskless. Since's it's a very narrow sidewalk, that kind of rude and unsafe behavior is better left to Trump rallies.
