Hiking Chadwick Hill
Near the top, the trees open up and a gorgeous bluff offers expansive views of the Sound and the Olympic mountains in the distance. The wind is strong up here, so bring a coat!
Explore the myriad little off-shoot trails on Chadwick Hill, but bring a map to make sure you know where on the hill you are. It's possible to do any number of loops and really increase your mileage.

Map & Directions
Before You Go
WTA Pro Tip: Save a copy of our directions before you leave! App-based driving directions aren't always accurate and data connections may be unreliable as you drive to the trailhead.
Once on Lopez Island, leave your car at the parking lot and walk back to Watmough Head Road, then turn left. Walk about 10 minutes until you see a small trail going into the woods on the right. Note that if you see a "Private Property" or "No Trespassing" sign you've gone too far.
