Bluff Trail – Coupeville Area

Bluff TrailThe Bluff Trail is a gem of a hike on central Whidbey Island, just a few miles from Coupeville.  We hiked this loop trail at the end of September, and also visited the Sunnyside Cemetery and some other historic buildings along the ridge.

Here is a complete article on this trail: Bluff Trail.

We parked at the top of the hill by the Cemetery, a Discover Pass is required here and also at the small lot on the beach.  Many people park along the beach road where no Discover Pass is required.

I was thinking that this would be a pretty easy stroll, but was wrong.  There is a steepness factor that is a bit disconcerting, at least to me.  The bluff itself is very steep and the trail is right on the edge, for quite a ways.  Everything is tilted just enough to make me somewhat dizzy!  As always, we hiked with our trekking poles, which helped immensely.   If you were to start to fall down this slope, it would be very difficult to stop.
