Hikes on Lopez Island
Hiking Nature Preserves
There are several hikes on Lopez Island that are accessible to the public on San Juan County Bank and other preserved lands. If you are spending some time in Lopez Village and fancy a stroll in the woods and a lake view, Hummel Lake is a five-minute drive away. An 80-acre nature preserve, Hummel Lake has a fishing dock and an easy trail route through the surrounding woods.
The second-highest peak on Lopez Island, Chadwick Hill rises above one of Lopez’s favorite beaches located on Watmough Bay. Before taking a break on the beach though, hike to the 470-foot summit for some great views over Rosario Strait to Whidbey Island and the mainland in the far distance.
