Hiking Iceberg Point

A short loop hike to rock cliffs, with fantastic views out towards the Olympic Peninsula, and back toward other parts of Lopez. It is suitable for children, dogs on leash, and folks of all ages.

Highlights include: some gnarly, contorted trees for climbing; a warning light for ships on the rocks; views from the cliffs out to the Olympics; and some history. Iceberg Point used to be a reef net site, and locals could drive up to the site, and get fish off the boats right off shore.

Wildflowers are plentiful early summer and orca whales pass through off shore.

From the parking lot at Agate Beach County Park, walk uphill along the gravel road, past several houses. Look for the sign pointing to Iceberg Point high up on a telephone pole (with a handsaw pointing directions). Since you are walking through private property, be very respectful of these homes.
