Hoypus Point: The CCC Crossing Trail
The other day I took my first hike out to Hoypus Point in Deception Pass State Park. I wanted to get my bearings for the upcoming First Day Hike for 2016 . As I mentioned, I had never explored this section of the park. Since then, the skies have cleared and the temperatures have dropped. With a day off work and and perfect weather, I decided to return to Hoypus and explore a little more territory. I arrived about 8:30 a.m. The temperature was 30° F (-1° C) with clear skies and a rising sun. How different the Deception Pass Bridge looks today with the morning sun just starting to hit it. Today, I planned to explore the CCC Crossing Trail which would take me deeper into the Hoypus forest. From the Cornet Bay Road Trail I took the first right and found a gently rising slope into the woods. I noticed the trails had been freshly groomed, no doubt by the guys from SWITMO . Is this an indication it will be part of the itinerary for the First Day Hike on New Year's Day?
