Carpools will need to be on the 9:00 am Mukilteo ferry. It is a 40 min. drive to the Prairie Overlook; see directions below. If you want to walk on, be sure to arrive early to park, get your ferry ticket, and walk on before the ferry leaves at 9:00 am. Once you walk off, pre-arranged rides from Whidbey members will be waiting to meet you at the Clinton Ferry dock. We will start this hike at 10:15 am to allow time to drive to the Prairie Overlook. We will stop after the hike to grab a bite to eat.
Parking and ferry fare information: Lighthouse Park Location: 609 Front Street, Mukilteo. There is a four hour limit, but I have never had anyone experience any issues of having their car towed yet. There is also parking at the Sounders train station in Mukilteo. Address 920 First St., Mukilteo Directions: Turn right on Front Street, and take the next right on Park Ave. and a left on 1st street. You could also meet at a park and ride and carpool to the ferry if you are concerned. Plan to arrive early to park and buy your ferry ticket. You can walk up the hill to the ticket booth if the window at the terminal is closed, or buy inside the terminal at a kiosk. There is no ferry fare for returning walk on passengers from Clinton, but there is a car and driver fare. Let me know if there are any other questions. If you would like my phone number you can email me a private message.
