Meet at 9 a.m. in LOT A at Washington Park in Anacortes; turn right just at the park entrance. The sign says “Picnic Area” with an arrow pointing to the right. Children’s’ play area is close to this large parking lot. In the past the focus of this hike has been on wildflowers and geology of the area. When you return to your car, you may leave for the Guemes Channel Trail. Instructions to Guemes Channel will be given out at the meeting place.
