Carpool from the Ash Way Park and Ride at I-5 exit 183, leaving about 8:15 am to catch the 9 am ferry from Mukilteo to Clinton. Alternatively, meet at the Prarie Overlook trailhead at 10 am. Head north on SR-525 for 19 miles to a junction with SR-20. Continue straight on for approx. 5 miles to the town of Coupeville, and continue north on SR-20 for approx. 1 mile. Turn left onto Sherman Road and continue until you reach a right turn for Cook Road. Drive to the end of Cook Road to the Prairie Overlook trailhead, located directly across from a cemetery

The tide will be going out as we start our loop, but if conditions are quite windy, the surf may restrict walking down the beach and we'll return along the bluff.

Afterwards, optionally explore the shops and restaurants in nearby Coupeville.
