Pass Island trail

Published March 13, 2018 / by Steve Berentson

It exists in the middle space between Whidbey and Fidalgo islands. Although many Deception Pass travelers are unaware of it, the two spans of the historic bridge are tied to Pass Island. The tiny island is ringed by a trail, and although sections of the trail fall into the “experienced hiker” category, most of it is quite safe. Views from the island perspective are exceptional. Note: a Discover Pass is required to park in the very small parking area; great caution is required as you enter and exit the parking area.

About Steve Berentson
A fourth generation Skagit County native who was moved kicking and screaming from this island community in 1960. I finally reclaimed an Anacortes address in 1980, and I have been in constant celebration of my return since that time. Many of us who call Anacortes home love Fidalgo Island for its natural assets: among them are rugged beaches, pristine lakes, thousands of acres of forestland and some awesome views of the Skagit Valley and surrounding islands. Another element of my love affair with this community is its people, both natives and immigrants. They will “star” in many of my journal entries.
