Upright Head Preserve, Lopez Island (Accessible to the public)


Upright Head is the northernmost point on Lopez Island and is an important landmark recognized by many who travel the state ferry system. This 26-acre property includes 2,023 feet of medium and high-bank waterfront on Harney and Upright Channels. It lies adjacent to the Lopez ferry landing and surrounds a 2-acre lot owned by the Washington State Department of Transportation. As the property possesses development infrastructure including water system and road for a 13-lot subdivision, residential development on the property would be highly visible from the water. Protecting this land prevents development and secures otter habitat, old growth forest, and interesting geological features.
