Need to Know

Young Hill Overlook Spur can be found at the 0.8-mile mark along Young Hill Trail.

Description

Young Hill Overlook Spur is basically flat as it traverses the upper slopes of Young Hill. At first, Young Hill Overlook Spur goes through grass dotted with trees and then a treeless section. The top of Young Hill can be seen up the steep hillside to the left (east). But the dramatic views are to the right where the hillside drops off steeply. Expansive views of many San Juan Islands and Vancouver Island in Canada can be seen. Stunning and awe inspiring! Especially on a clear day.

Flora & Fauna

Woods of tall trees. Grassy woods and grass areas.
