10 Must Do’s on Chuckanut Drive

1. The Oyster Bar on Chuckanut: Easily our top recommendation for lunch or sunset dinner.

2. If bird watching strikes your fancy, we recommended extending your drive south to the Samish Flats, prime turf for birding. See if you can spot bald eagles, red-tail hawks, at least a half dozen rough-legged hawks, falcons, merlin, peregrines, kestrels or prairie falcon. In the winter this area offers spectacular showings of snow geese and flocks of trumpeter swans.

3. Samish Overlook & Oyster Dome Trailhead. Gear up for at 5 mile round-trip excursion that is sure to lift your heart rate or skip the hike and get right to the top.

4. Say Cheese! Samish Bay Cheese is owned and operated by Suzanne and Roger Wechsler. This 200 acre farm is home to a mixed herd of Milking Shorthorns, some crossed with Jersey, Holstein, or Dutch Belted

5. Taylor Shellfish: “From tide to table, they’ve been farming high quality, sustainable shellfish
in the Pacific Northwest since the 1890’s.

7. Opt to Stop! Chuckanut drive is a curvy and narrow 2 lane road hugging the cliff line over looking Samish bay. This is a common destination or training ride for road bikers. We’ve identified two designated pull-outs to stop and take in the bay view.

8. Fill your day with adventure accessing the beaches near Larabee State Park or the moderate to steep hiking trails on the east side of the road. We’d recommend the Fragrance Lake look for casual hikers. Don’t forget your Discovery Pass if you plan to park here.

9. Chuckanut Bay Gallery offers a variety of artisan crafted infused and etched glass, beautiful glazed pottery, fine handmade jewelry, wooden crafts, cookware, games, textiles, art prints, handcrafted soaps and lotions; or peruse the gardens overflowing with sculpture, water features, lanterns, wind chimes, and bird houses/feeders.

10. Blueberry picking is the perfect activity and Skagit County is home to a number of farms producing some of the Washingtons’ finest blues.
