Hike of the week: Deception Pass Headlands Trail

Hike description: The Headlands Trail will give you a taste of all that Deception Pass State Park has to offer. Deception Pass is a lowland hiking paradise with natural and man-made marvels. The state park is known for spectacular views from its rugged cliffs overlooking the turbulent water of Puget Sound. The bridge is another marvel. The 77,000 feet of saltwater shoreline is home to abundant marine life. Within the park's 4,134 acres you'll find diverse areas to explore. More than 38 miles of trail will take you from sand dunes to old-growth forest where you'll find four freshwater lakes (Cranberry, Pass, Campbell and Heart).
