'Roam with a Ranger' tours start at Ebey's Landing
A new walking program has begun for locals and visitors to Whidbey Island. Throughout the summer, guided walking tours led by a National Park Service ranger will offer a look at Ebey’s Landing National Historical Reserve.
“Roam with a Ranger” walks are held every day of the week at three different locations around the reserve.
The walks are held at 10 a.m., noon and 2 p.m. to give visitors a variety of times to choose from, but each covers a different venue.
At 10 a.m. in the morning a ranger will meet walkers at the kiosk at the beach at Ebey’s Landing. For an hour, walkers will learn the history and geography of the area while taking in the views of Ebey’s Prairie, Puget Sound and the distant snow-capped mountains.
Daily at noon a walk departs from the prairie overlook just across from the Sunnyside Cemetery. Walkers can enjoy the Bluff Trail and a close up look at the Jacob Ebey House currently under restoration.
At 2 p.m., walkers meet in historic downtown Coupeville at the entrance to the wharf for a history filled walk down Front Street.
No reservations are required, walkers just show up at the designated starting point.
