Gorgeous hike! Walked up the south west side first - a bit rocky and muddy, but doable. Sometimes there were a lot of slippery leaves, but we took our time and didn’t have any casualties. Excited to do this one again!

Views on a clear day are magnificent!

Fun, scenic hike. The side trail to the cemetery was nice. Restroom at that point also. Continued back on Bluff Trail down to the beach. We hit the beach right at high tide so it was slow going but overall a great time.

Did this on a less than perfect day and still loved it! We did it without the out and back bit and it clocked in around 3.5 miles. The walk back along the beach is lovely, but the sand isn’t packed very hard, so be prepared to take it slower than you may want.

Nice views, fairly flat hike, but the trail could use some maintenance, as the brush gets pretty close in a couple places.

Took 2 small kids on this trek, did not do full red circle, we cut through dotted line and while there is a clearly marked trail, it is not often travelled enough to keep it wide. Too much tall brush that kids were put into carriers. Semi challenging hike with rocks and inclines but it was fun!

Great walk for the whole family. There is even a portapotty by the rv Park if someone needs to go. Lots of benchs along the way, placed in ideal locations for the best views.

We took a half of this trail. We parked the car on RV park, there is a parking place for walkers. This trail is super cool for inline skating, but I didnt see any. In our country is in line skating very popular and this trail would be full of people. We also saw a seals and from this trail you see the Baker mt. and the industrial park (rafinery). A star minus, you hear a noise from the road.

this trail remains in great shape! try to go early as parking is limited to about 4 cars. the views of the San Juans are amazing!

Gorgeous trail, great for dogs. Saw no one else until I was near the parking lot. Found the best tasting blackberry bushes as well!

Pretty views. You walk along the water on the bluffs.

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!

Excellent view. Pleasant weather. Right time to go.

As a beginner to running I found the hills challenging but the trail was paved and simple for me to follow. Great views.

Gorgeous view on a sunny day! Went early to beat the heat and parking was no problem.

We ended going up against trend and climbing up the cliffs. It’s a good workout (ended up with 44 flights on my fit bit) but still enjoyed ourselves. Hiked with a canine companion who loved the beach and did great on the trail.

I would totally do this again to enjoy that view and the wildflowers.

Easy, plenty of places to wander! Beautiful views

I went on this hike with my daughter and three grandkids. The oldest is 9 the middle is 6 and the baby is going to be one tomorrow. It was a lot of fun. My daughter carried the baby in a front pack and the rest of us had packs with lunch and necessities. The kids slowed down on the beach part. Not because they were tired there were just so many treasures to be found. I would recommend this to family’s.

We started up the trail at a little after 11am. Just one other hiker at the summit — from which the view was magnificent. However traffic increased significantly soon thereafter, including a group with a drone, trampling all over the tranquility. Boo. Still a beautiful, quick and easy hike with a gazillion dollar view from the summit. We planned to stick around for a bit and see if any eagles showed up but that was unlikely with that horrible drone buzzing around.

Nice way to spend the day! I took the ferry over and walked from the ferry landing, probably added nearly 4 miles to the walk, made for a great hike/walk. The area is beautiful as are the views from the top. Good hike to take a dog on.

I hiked on a clear day and the view was spectacular! Trail is a bit narrow and I was uncomfortable winding down the cliff to the bottom with my dog, so we didn't make the loop. There's really no shade along the path and it was getting too hot for the dog, so cutting the walk worked out fine.

Great views. Lots of cars today. We’d definitely go again.

Great views in a short distance. Uphill with switchbacks going in and downhill going out. Good hike for those who want to hike but may not be completely fit and ready for more advanced hikes.

It was a cloudy day so there weren't any views of the mountains but the smell of the wild flowers and the views of Puget Sound and the islands in the distance were amazing.

One of my favorite trails to jog and take the kids to. Very easy and the perfect distance to get a workout in but still short enough to be able to make it home before dinner!

There are difficult hikes in here as well as flat ground. Be sure to pick your trail wisely as there are about 30! The full hike around the lake usually takes a couple hours, it’s gorgeous!
There are smaller trails that can fill just twenty minutes as well.

Most of the trail is along a road but when you get to a viewpoint they’re pretty gorgeous. Also nice to have a playground at the parking lot to ensure we wore the 3-year-old out before driving back home.

Great trail that circles the lake, there's also a small cave on the northeast part.

Great trail, amazing views. Great hike with a dog.
