In my last post I explained the history of Ebey’s Landing and the events that have happened there, both good and bad. But it is also an absolutely beautiful location, and a great place to take a walk or go for a hike.
On our Christmas Day hike, we parked across the street from Sunnyside Cemetery. We walked down the trail past the Jacob Ebey house and one of the Blockhouses. From the trail you can walk down to the beach and Ebey’s Landing, or up the hill to walk along the bluff.
We went up further on the bluff and walked the trail. You can see all the way over to Port Townsend, and we were lucky enough to see one of the ferries making its run from Port Townsend to Coupeville.
We also enjoyed just looking down the bluff at the ocean – you can’t go wrong with the view! It is pretty steep though – you certainly wouldn’t want to fall down the hill!
The trail that we took is a 7 mile round trip – it goes all the way to the State Park to the north. We didn’t walk the whole trail because we didn’t have time, but it would be a great hike!
