Fagin's Hike of the Week- Ebby's Landing

This hike is on Whidbey and the directions here are a different way to Ebby's Landing and this offers great views of  the Sound and of the Olympic Mountains from the bluff. We start the hike  just outside of the town of Coupeville and start at the  Prairie Overlook trailhead (across from the cemetery). This hike goes past historic houses and farmland and then you are on the bluff with great views. There is some property near the hike so please respect that.  These photos are from last year but I just read a trip report so trails still good

Trail: This is a good map to use.  Start on Ebby's Parire Trail and hike about one mile southwest and  you come to the bluff  and a fork. You  can right up the bluff with better views and if you continue you can reach the beach and loop back which is about 5.5 miles. Or at the fork you can turn left and go down to the beach. Another option is to stop at the bluff and go back to trailhead and it is  only 2 miles roundtrip.

Direction:  From Mukilteo, take the ferry over to Clinton. . Head north on SR-525 for 19 miles to a junction with SR-20. Continue straight on for approx. 5 miles to the town of Coupeville, and continue north on SR-20 for approx. 1 mile. Turn left onto Sherman Road and continue until you reach a right turn for Cook Road. Drive to the end of Cook Road to the Prairie Overlook trailhead, located directly across from a cemetery.
