    Lopez Island??? Is it worth it?

    My son and I are thinking about going to Lopez Island this weekend. Is it worth it? I hear its pretty flat but great views. Just looking for something different.

    Thanks
    Mike

    take the road bikes and the kayak. Great road rides there; and it's a great place to relax. Some dirt available on lopez hill, just keep the expectations low if you must ride dirt. Lots of great shoreline hikes there too.

    Don't go there for the MTB riding, that's for sure. If you have other reasons to go, and have some free time, the ride on Lopez Hill is OK. But definitely not sufficient to motivate a trip to the island.

    Save it and ride the Orcas trails when they are open to bikes again in the fall.
