parking wasn't bad. the trail was fairly easy at the beginning. starts to get a slight incline a bit later but overall was an easy and relaxing hike. The way back is worse though because its mostly up hill. Seeing the old kiln is cool and if you hike past that for a mile is the river which you can eventually go down to if you want. The path to the river is a bit narrow so be careful. I'd go again. I went during the week in the early afternoon.

trail running

I came to the mountain early (before the park was open) and used another entrance up the road. It has a lot of little trails to use with beautiful scenery. The top view is worth it. I was able to run most of it but near the top some of the trails got too steep to run. The main view is nice but if you follow the walking trail just left of the gazebo there is a nice rock to sit on and take in the view.

mountain biking

The mountain biking is closer to moderate than easy but doable for our whole family and really fun! Warning...it’s a bit confusing following the trails but getting lost isn’t a big deal since it’s just a series of intertwining loops and connector trails. Anacortes bike shop has a detailed map (even though no one at the shop has actually mountain biked there). Cranberry lake is a beautiful little lake!

Uphill but paths are nicely maintained. It takes about 30 minutes to get from the parking lot to the Sugarloaf viewpoint.

Hike really beautiful but a portion of trail overgrown, full if bandit trails which you can easily to get lost and some parts are dangerous. This hike made me almost uninstall this app.

forest road was pretty decent, car could make it up just go slow. trail was easy enough for kids and not too long. independent lake was gorgeous!! aqua blue. tried to make it to north lake but turned around half way. talked to a few people on the way up who said its easy to lose the trail best to download the map. we will be back to camp and go to north lake.

BEWARE!!! I parked for an hour and three minutes this afternoon and my window was busted when I got back to my car. Going to cost me hundreds of dollars for a shitty hike.

Took my daughter on this hike and it was doable for a 10-year old. The last part of the trail up to the top of Erie is a bit tricky for the less experienced. Also, as others have said, the trail system can be very confusing if you have not been on the trail before. Views were good, but not great because of smoke/haze.

Beautiful woodsy and easy hike! I loved the river spot! Sometimes you just don't want to climb 3,000 feet!

nice walk to the old kiln and nice good cold swim at the river! but warmer than lake 22

Great hike! Brought a couple of dogs and they loved it. Especially the extra hike to the water. It was pretty easy overall. Some parts are pretty narrow and we got eaten by mosquitos. But it was very pretty!

Nice hike for kiddos, peaceful and relaxing with a cool little river loop at the end of trail. Historical context of hike added bonus.

This is a flat easy trail. There is no protection from sun or wind. I felt baked even with 30 sunscreen 1 mile in. I recommend starting at the end and going the other way. There is parking at both trailheads.

Great for kids! My four year old walked (almost) the entire way. The kiln and old logging equipment were super interesting. The trail is well maintained and not difficult at all.

Great hike, good for kids too. A bit of a hill towards the end. A nice scenic trail!

Lots of elevation gain. Many options and view points.

Lots of trail choices, very well maintained, and great view!

One of my favorite hikes. The views you get are amazing. We were blessed with abundant sunshine today and it was breathtaking.
We started at the Rosario head trail and made our way to lighthouse point. We read the reviews saying that the north side of lighthouse point was dangerous and we thought we were avoiding it but we didn’t. We made it down an extremely steep bank to a rocky beach and ended up having to turn around and head back the way we came. AVOID THE NORTH END. It is definitely not safe. If we didn’t have so many little kids with us, we would have seriously considered swimming back to the main shore to avoid the going up the bank we came down. Even with that scary part of the hike we all loved it and would definitely do it again. All the kids loved it. We had around 20 kids in our group ranging from 1 to 12 and they all did great.

Was a great hike even in the rain. There's a good mix of incline/flat/decline to keep it on the easy side. I would like to go back in the sun and spend more time at the river.

Well groomed trail. If you have a dog that likes water the payoff is at the end of the trail with a nice river access area. The current was not very strong and my dog was able to swim. Go early though, this trail gets packed.

I did this hike with my dog and it was nice. The views change from ferns and moss, to a blackberry patch, easy gravel trail, then a dirt trail with some rocks, logs, and a bit of water over the trail in some areas. The kiln and remnants were cool. You travel above the river the last part of the hike, and can hear it but can’t easily reach it. I’m a novice hiker and wore my tennis shoes and did fine. Recommend doing during the week. Looks like parking is a problem on weekends. Lots of no parking signs before the parking lot.

on Lime Kiln Trail

very nice, easy, well maintained, it's good for daily exercise and learn some historic as you go.

Just did this hike yesterday with a friend. Easy on the way down and slightly moderate (at times) on the return.

The kiln was neat to look at but hardly anything has been left behind. It’s 100+ years old after all. Still quite a feat that it was ever constructed.

The river was beautifully green (assuming from the lime stone?) and there were plenty of spots to sit and enjoy.

Parking was easy at 8:30 on a Sunday morning.

An easy hike, with beautiful scenery and interesting finds. The trail itself is well maintained and fun to learn some of the history as you go.

This is the perfect intro hike for people trying to get back into shape (like myself!). While there were easy parts, the few hills and total distance kept it at a good challenge.

Still some snow on the trail. Wasn’t able to make it to the second lake, but still worth the trip.

Really nice hike

Beautiful hike with lots of view points and various campsites near by. The hike itself is pretty easy but be sure to bring bug spray because I came home with lots of bites. Lots of spider webs to run into as well. Try to go early to avoid crowds. By the time we left at 9 am the parking lot was full.

This was a nice hike. It’s a quiet trill with some interesting things to see on the way. People are nice throughout the trill. Hopefully I will be back.
