Join Hiking with Geeks, Seattle for a beautiful 3.5 mile(s) hike, and meet some fellow geeks!
Discover Pass required
From I-5 in Mount Vernon, take exit 230 for Hwy 20, signed Burlington/Anacortes. If you are northbound, stay in the left lane and turn left onto Hwy 20 west. Continue on Hwy 20 for 11.4 miles, then turn left at the intersection with spur 20 to Anacortes; your turn will be signed Whidbey Island/Deception Pass. In 5 miles, turn right onto Rosario Road, at the south end of Pass Lake. Take an immediate left onto Bowman Bay Road and follow it downhill to the park. This is part of Deception Pass State Park, so there are plenty of facilities, including parking, water, restrooms, a picnic area and campground. We will meet in the large parking lot at Bowman Bay
• The event start time is the gathering time. Please meet at the Lighthouse Point to Rosario Head at Deception Pass trail head at that time. We’ll leave promptly 15 minutes after the scheduled start time (to give some cushion for late arrivers while still respecting everyone’s time). We’ll hike the trail and get to know each other along the way.
• For those that want to grab a bite after our hike, we’ll make plans to grab a bite to eat if there’s interest.
