The road section of the trail down to the block house is muddy with some large puddles, but there is enough dry land to make it easily navigable. We missed the trail that runs along the fence line-we were too busy watching the bunnies-and ended up walking along the road that runs around the blooming broccoli fields. I am pretty sure this was private property, but no one said anything. So, with that said, when you get to the block house, look left, the trail runs along the fence line on the opposite side of the fence. It is an obvious trail and not the beat up tractor route.
We did not go up to the high point of the trail, it looked a bit more steep than father in law wanted to attempt. We went down to beach for a snack and some beach ramblings. You can also drive directly to the beach (I think you would take the road before Sherman road, if you are coming from the south.)
There were many people out on this sunny Sunday, but it did not feel crowded at all, since there is plenty of room to spread out along the trail and beach. Ebey's Landing is a great trail for kids (if hands are held on the upper part) and dogs (leashes please!) There is a restroom and picnic tables at the beach.
