WTA is a nonprofit that needs you

We're just as excited as you to get the summer hiking season started. We're psyched our website, app and work for trails help you get outside.

But we're a nonprofit that runs on donations from regular people. If everyone who visited this site this holiday weekend donated $9/month, it would fully fund our work for the next 2 years. Time spent outdoors is priceless, but every donation large or small helps us support those experiences for everyone. Thank you and happy hiking!

Hiking Morgan Tidelands

Enjoy this 2.5 mile long beach hike thanks to a donation from the Morgan Family to Whidbey Camano Land Trust.

This hike is best enjoyed at low tide, since most of it is walkable in sand. The route is still hikeable at high tide, but the way is rockier.

Along the way, spy marine life and birds, especially Bald Eagles that can be seen almost every day along the cliffs above the beach. At the far south end you can check out little tide pools (but only at low tide) and see some small marine life. Remember to look but not touch -- these animals are in their natural environment and don't want to be poked.

Visiting in the evening, there are spectacular sunsets on this beach. On a clear day with no fog you can see Olympic Mountains, Smith Island and some of the San Juan Islands.

A fantastic beach hike, and entertaining for hikers of all capabilities.
