We enjoyed the well labeled, well maintained trails. Recent fire blocked off the opportunity to do a nice loop hike as planned. Very family friendly. However, if you are looking for a wilderness type of experience, this is not it. More like a Seattle Metro Park.

A local favorite. Be advised that as of late august the east side of the lake is indefinitely closed due to a forest fire.

Can we just address the elephant in the room?? THERE IS NO LIGHTHOUSE. For some reason the people we were hiking with told us there was... We got lost and did the same circle twice and when we finally got there what was waiting for us... A three foot pole with a green reflector on it on an island a few feet away. It was super anti climactic and felt like our party just decided to meander through the woods for a few hours. The trail itself was really pretty if you're cool with there being no satisfying view, waterfall or um... Lighthouse at the end. But I wouldn't call this a hike for stated reason and Id do it again only as something to do while camping. Gorgeous area though

first hike in Washington. it was really awesome. trails were clearly marked and over all a really nice hike.

Nice easy hike around the point. There are several trails that shoot off from the main trail but it is easy enough to navigate as you can always see the water. A previous review indicated it was not a loop. This is incorrect, the walk is in fact a loop.

We walked from the Bowman parking lot to Rosario Beach for the tide pools-- WOW! The hike was mostly flat and smooth-- some great views and beautiful madrona trees. There's a rope that guides you through the tide pools to minimize foot trafftic through a delicate ecosystem. We saw all manner of sea vegetables and lots of urchins, tiny crabs, etc. The tide was coming in, so we didn't stay as long as we might have liked-- check the tide schedule online to plan your trip. What a treat for landlubbers like me!

this is also known as mount Eric

Lottie's loop w the kids. Awesome beach spots for picnics!

Well - first of all get a trail map or at least take a picture of map at trail head. There are many alternate trails throughout connecting to different longer routes and final destinations. I believe I did a portion of trail from this sites map - maybe slightly shorter. I did get to Sugarloaf Mountain top for the scenic views, which were lovely. The beginning of hike is kind of steep, but overall moderate. I'd say it is worth checking out as well as the other trails. Look at your map ahead of time a plan out where you want to go

It is more than just the hike but the overall adventure of getting there. I took the short ferry ride to Guemes Island and stopped in at Anderson's General Store where I reserved a bike to ride to the trail. It is a lovely bike ride along quite roads. The hike itself is no too long and fairly easy, although it did get my heart rate up The trail is beautifully maintained and you walk mostly under tall trees with peek a boo water views. Once to the top the view is beautiful. You look out over islands of the San Juans. It's a must do if you are in the area.

Amazing!! Great hike, perfect on a beautiful day for those that like to meditate. The views are stunning! I will go back many times, I'm sure of it..

It is just a beautiful trail❤️
Love how peaceful it is

I recently moved to oak harbor and this bridge caught my eye. There is so many trails down it, it's unbelievable. There's a couple trails you can take kids down by the beach. To get down there your able to start from the oak harbor entrance going down on the left side or there's a rode right before entering the bridge from the same side. WARNING you will need an adventure pass (30/year or 10/day). There is some free days like holidays that are free to everyone!
