Spend Easter Sunday among the tulip fields and flat farmland of Skagit County. We'll meet in Mt. Vernon, then ride out to Fir Island and stop for a bite at the welcoming Rexville Grocery deli before touring the tulip fields. Optional side trip to LaConner based on the weather. Bring your camera and $ for snacks, and dress to ward off windy, chilly conditions.

Comments

I made this mistake when I lead a tulip ride last Friday. The park is NOT at this address even though that's what Google and other websites say. That Cleveland ave address is on the wrong side of the river maybe a mile from the park. As I remember, the real address is the intersection of Behrins Mill road and Baker which I think starts out as Ball.

 

Thank you Bruce for the heads-up. Yes, the stated address for that park is wrong, but the pin on the map shows the correct location.

Here's how to get there:

- From I-5, take Exit 226, Kincaid St./SR 536.

- Left at stoplight onto Kincaid.

- Cross railroad tracks, then right onto S. 3rd St. Road curves left and turns into Division St.

- Continue two blocks, cross bridge, then first left into Edgewater Park.
