Route
“See all the great catches of the day at the fish cleaning station from big halibut, to red, silver, or king salmon, to rock fish or ling cod. Or you could just walk along the small boat harbor enjoying the mountain views on the other side of the sound. You might even catch a glimpse of a sea otter hanging around.”

Sandwich Place

“About a 30 walk down to the waterfront where you can get some great pictures of the mountains on the other side of the sound. On the way you can see an eagle's nest and also walk alongside Mineral Creek. The Homestead Trail is accessible halfway down Homestead Road on the left hand side where you can also park your vehicle. ”
