The Whidbey Institute includes a 106-acre conservation forest with 4.5 miles of trails that are hilly but all below 500 feet. This hike is deep in the forest and very quiet. You will see lots of ferns, cedars and Douglas fir trees. If you’re lucky, you may see a rare albino Douglass squirrel. His exact location within the 106-acre lot is kept a secret to protect him.
