COVID-19 update: Following agency, State and Island County phased reopening guidelines, the National Park Service and The Nature Conservancy have an updated plan for use of the Bluff Trail. Because the trail is narrow, especially at the switchback end, some areas make it hard to maintain social distancing. The trail is open for one-way foot traffic, as shown on this map. Even though this restriction is temporary, we understand it might be frustrating. Please help these agencies as they do their best to follow guidelines, and provide a safe and healthy outdoor experience on the lands they protect and manage. The toilet at the Pratt Loop trailhead remains closed for now, but the toilet at Ebey's Landing State Park is open. Reserve trail guides and brochures are available on the porch of the Trust Board office - 162 Cemetery Road.
The vistas, woodlands, and fertile prairies of Ebey’s Landing National Historical Reserve are much the same today as they were over 100 years ago when New England sea captains were drawn to Penn Cove and farmers to Ebey’s Prairie. We welcome you to explore the Reserve and visit the parks and public use areas.
Created by Congress in 1978, the 17,572-acre Reserve consists of historic farms, a quaint seaside town, native and pioneer land-use traditions, and ecologically significant areas.
Ebey’s Landing National Historical Reserve is governed by a Trust Board with representatives from the Town of Coupeville, Island County, Washington State, and the National Park Service.
