- THINGS TO DO
As going off the grid gains popularity, biking trips are becoming the preferred mode to take in the sights and sunshine. Bike Skagit for the first time or like you have never done before!
There are endless possibilities here: Bike for a few hours, a few days, or construct a trip that takes you into the rainforest of the Cascades, or famous seaside towns such as La Conner, and over to Anacortes.
Your trip can be a gentle meander through the valley, or a cardio crusade with mountain biking or a trip on the North Cascades Highway. How about walking on the Guemes Island Ferry or the San Juan Island Ferries for an island bicycle experience!
Take a bicycle tour through the daffodil fields during the La Conner Daffodil Festival and the tulip fields during the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival. Tour display gardens, view open fields, stop at a local garden cafe for a hearty lunch and experience the festival from a local perspective. Don’t miss the Daffodil Festival Bike Ride and the Tulip Pedal!

Experience the majestic beauty of the Magic Skagit on the trail. Our mountains, forests, valley, and islands are big enough to provide a lifetime of outdoor adventure and exploration. Our trails play a unique role in Skagit County’s environmental community, bringing enthusiasts for recreation and conservation together to protect the awesome wild places we love to explore, and to protect the opportunities for people to enjoy them.
Geocaching & letterboxing are treasure hunting games that are fun for the whole family to play on the trails! The basic idea is to locate hidden containers, called geocaches or letterboxes, outdoors and then share your experiences online or in the letter box. Geocaching is enjoyed by people from all age groups, with a strong sense of community and support for the environment.
