April 11 – Wednesday: Ebey’s Landing Hike – Trip Leader: Lori Stelter. Meet at REI parking lot to carpool, promptly leaving at 9:30 AM. Ebey’s Landing is a bluff trail near Coupeville, with fabulous views of the Cascades and Olympics. The first half of the trail is on the bluff, and then descends down to the beach, completing a loop. Elevation gain 250 feet. Total distance roughly 6 miles. This is an easy walking trail with a relatively short steeper section on sand/dirt descending to the beach. The beach is round smaller rock. Perhaps we may spot a gray whale?? It can be breezy, and there is little shade – so plan accordingly – hopefully there will be lots of sunshine!

Bring a lunch. Perhaps an ice cream stop in Coupeville afterwards. We will begin our hike at the Prairie Overlook Trailhead (across from Sunnyside Cemetery – off of Sherman Road – free parking). For anyone wanting to meet at the trailhead: Please RSVP so we don’t take off without you.Please be ready to hike by 11 AM if you meet us there. Contact Lori with any questions. 360-223-8637
