 Went out on Hike #1 of the new year and due to weather condition and small breaks of sunshine I kept close to home and decided to hike a rather unknown park called Sharpe Park, Montgomery Dubin Headlands on Fidalgo Island not far from Deception Pass State Park which is a well known park. This turned out to be a great hike. I met up with just a few people. All the trails in the park might equal 3 to 5 miles total but the ocean views from the bluff trail are well worth checking out. I must advise that the bluff trail is some what steep going down and along the bluff you must have good balance and common sense about taking too much risk. Falls would be deadly. You will find a small lake covered with ducks and lots of Cedar and Madrone Trees along the cliffs. Trails are well maintained and if this does not give you enough exercise you can head down the road another 5 to 10 minutes to Deception Pass State Park. Check out over 140 other videos of hikes I have done in Washington State or just click on this direct link to this hike http://www.youtube.com/user/lmm3181?feature=mhee. It is safe to click on. As always get out and see this beautiful state and enjoy your hiking.
Take Care

Lewis River Trail

South Cascades

We're at the cusp of waterfall season! With five waterfalls in a 7-mile roundtrip, this Lewis River hike is one to keep on your April-June to-do list. If you're hiking with creaky knees or kiddos, take in the magnificent, close-in Lower Lewis River Falls. If you want a longer hike with some ups and downs, venture all the way to Taidnapum Falls, 3.5 miles in.
