Did a hike up to the Bluffs starting at the parking lot on the South end of the bridge. Beautiful walk through the forest. It involved some elevation increase but easily do-able.

Deception Pass State Park is an incredibly scenic park that is accessible by car. It's located on Whidbey Island which is worth further exploration as well. There are tons of trails, water access, and great scenery to be enjoyed!

Yes, you can drive to the parking lot just south of the Deception Pass bridge. It's an easy walk from there onto the bridge. There is also a dirt trail that goes downhill from the parking lot to the beach.
