Geology Hike on Fidalgo Island

Jul 2015 10

2:00 PM to 4:00 PM
Fidalgo Island, WA

Join Skagit Land Trust and local Geologist and Hydrogeologist Scott Petersen on a hiking tour of Fidalgo Island in the ACFL. The rocks of Fidalgo Island are fairly unique in that they were formed in the ocean and later faulted against the continent. The geologic term for this package of rocks is ophiolite.

If you are interested in learning more about this process and special place please join us. There will be a hike of approximately 1 mile in easy terrain with optional side trips, all near or on Mt. Erie in the center of the island.

Driving directions from Mount Vernon/Burlington: Take WA-20 west across Fidalgo Island turn left to stay on WA-20. Turn right at Campbell Lake Road, stay right at the fork and the road becomes Heart Lake Road. Turn right onto Ray Auld Drive for parking.

From Anacortes: Head west on 32nd St from Commercial Ave. Turn left on H Ave. H Ave eventually turns into Heart Lake Rd. Continue south on Heart Lake Rd approximately 1.6 miles. Ray Auld Drive will be on your left. Park anywhere along Ray Auld Drive near the trailhead kiosk.
