teddy bear cove

Teddy bear cove is a short hike to a long beach which at low tide is rich in tide pools and sea creatures. The hike can start from the north Chuckanut mountain trailhead (about 2 miles round trip) or from a small parking lot right above the cove (about 1-mile round trip).

There is one fairly steep hill down to the beach but this hike is still great for kids. Just make sure to go at low tide to enjoy combing the beach. By the time we left we had counted 71 starfish and a few crabs.
