At 470 feet, Chadwick Hill is the second-highest point on Lopez Island. The trail up the hill provides a great workout, with many ups and downs to keep you warm in the cool sea breezes.

Near the top, the trees open up and a gorgeous bluff offers expansive views of the Sound and the Olympic mountains in the distance. The wind is strong up here, so bring a coat!

Explore the myriad little off-shoot trails on Chadwick Hill, but bring a map to make sure you know where on the hill you are. It's possible to do any number of loops and really increase your mileage.

Trail Tip: There is a rope swing at the top of the hill that provides great views while you are hanging on for dear life

Getting There

Once on Lopez Island, leave your car at the parking lot and walk back to Watmough Head Road, then turn left. Walk about 10 minutes until you see a small trail going into the woods on the right. Note that if you see a "Private Property" or "No Trespassing" sign you've gone too far.
