Rosario Head Trail is an easy, family-friendly trail with a great pay-off at the end. We began by parking at the Bowman Bay Boat Launch. There are toilets and plenty of parking in the parking lot.
On your way to the cliff overview, be sure to stop at the legend of the Maiden of Deception Pass.
One of the reasons we love this trail for the family is there is so much to do along with this simple trail. If you plan your visit right, you can check out the tide pools of Rosario Beach, or expand your trail hiking and visit Lighthouse Point. Rosario Head trail with Lighthouse trail is around 5 miles in all.
