52 – Hoypus Point

While other visitors to Deception Pass State Park were at Cornet Bay to launch their boats, share a picnic on the many tables available or fish from the dock, I started from there to hike to the beach at Hoypus Point and then along the trails through the Hoypus Point Natural Forest Area.

It is an easy mile from Cornet Bay, first along an old service road and then along a trail, to the beach at Hoypus Point.

Along the trail . . .

Along the way, there are several view points – some even with benches – that look out to Deception Pass.

With the entire Hoypus Point beach to myself and the tide out, I strolled up and down and enjoyed the natural treasures found as I combed the beach.

Seeking shelter from the heat of the sun, I then set off along the seven miles of trails through the Hoypus Point Natural Forest Area.

Enjoying the cool shade of the forest, I took the time to follow all of the trails, including the CCC Crossing trail which was originally used by the Civilian Conservation Corps workers to haul lumber during construction of the park.
