Okay, what is the best way to get from the Tacoma area (Yelm/Roy) to Whidbey Island Horse Trials? Then I may need to go there from Monroe as well.

Is there a ferry on both ends or can I just drive through on the north end of the island?

There's a couple of ways you can go. Either take Highway 20 out of Mt. Vernon and go over Deception Pass (north end), or take the ferry out of Mukilteo to Clinton off of 525 (south end). It probably would be faster to go the Deception Pass way even though it would be more driving because the ferry traffic in the summer is very heavy and you might have a two or more boat wait.

Hope this helps.

That is exactly the kind of help I was looking for! Thank you, I never would have thought about having to wait for the ferry.

So, no ferry on the north end?

From Monroe, you think it would take me about an hour and a half?

Well, according to Google Maps, it's 1-1/2 hours to Oak Harbor from Monroe. You should give yourself 2 hours for unforseen problems.

Good luck!

Take the Deception Pass route the ferry is a drag out of the Mulkiteo side. I come from Portland and go thru Mt Vernon to Anacortes over Deception Pass
