Guemes Island, Washington
Guemes Island is not a large island only consisting of 5505 acres or about 8.6 sq. miles. Just a short 8-minute ride on the Guemes Island Ferry will get you some great parks, hiking trails, events and photography moments. Many areas are accessible to the public because of organizations like Skagit Land Trust and the San Juan Preservation Trust. My personal favorites are the Guemes Mountain Trail and Peach Preserve.

There is an incredible diversity of wildlife making Guemes Island their home. There are a variety of different habitats that a wide array of animals can live and survive in along the island shorelines. Preservation Trusts holds a lot of the sensitive areas that support the wildlife.
