The bluff at Ebey’s Landing —one of our most visited preserves—is a windswept headland laced by one of Western Washington's most popular coastal trails.
Here you’ll experience stunning views: on a clear day, one can look west to the Olympic Peninsula and the Strait of Juan de Fuca, south to Mt. Rainier, and east over historic farmland and prairie to the Cascade Mountains.
This preserve is also a fun place for children of all ages. We’ve made it easy to explore with our Ebey’s Eagle Eye Treasure Map, an interactive map of the preserve. With this guide, bring your family outside and explore the wonders of nature.
