List Description

This list shows all marine island high points in Washington State with an elevation of 200 feet or higher. Excluded are all islands in lakes and rivers, such as Mercer Island in Lake Washington or islands in the Columbia River.

Most islands on this list are in the the San Juans archipelago or the convoluted passages of Puget Sound. One is in Willapa Bay in southwest Washington, and two are in the Pacific off Cape Alava.

Climbing all peaks on this list is difficult due to access issues on several islands. Jorgenson Hill is on a Naval Reservation and closed to the general public, and the two islands near Capa Alava are part of a wildlife refuge and off-limits to protect bird nesting sites. Many of the smaller islands in the San Juans have no bridges or ferry service, so kayaking skills might be more important than climbing prowess for many of those peaks.


Thanks to Paul Klenke, who inspired this list and did a great deal of inital research.
