this is best explored on a motorcycle, riding solo.
starting from everett, WA [41st st. westbound], road becomes mukilteo blvd and the long twisty downhill ride towards the state park is nice but the roads are tricky when wet.
once you get to the park, there are some diner that serves awesome clam chowder while you wait for the next ferry that will take you to whidbey island, from there a nice relaxing ride on hwy 525 >> hwy 20 will bring you to deception pass state park [which i'd say the best park in WA state]
ok, you don't need to ride a bike to enjoy the beautiful scenery leading to deception pass state park. check it out on your next trip to the pacific northwest.
