Tough hike but worth the effort.

Great hike! Beautiful waterfall at the end

Great views despite the fog. Went on a weekday to avoid heavy traffic. The descent to the beach is steep.

Nice hike and views for 3/4 of trail. The last 1/4 the trail disappeared and was very difficult to find a way out. This app helped! Next time I would do 3/4 to the point and backtrack.

This is a difficult but fun trek up to a beautiful summit. The last bit is a challenge but the 360 degree view is incredible and well worth it. We saw a lot of wild flowers, berries and fungi along the way and made several photo stops as the view is spectacular at several points along the way. Bring water and sunblock, there’s a good portion out from under the trees.

Beautiful views! Very busy trail and lots of tree roots to walk over. Inclines were not bad at all. Get there early because the parking gets full.

Did this hike a few days ago and it was fantastic! We got there around 830ish and there was only one other car. There was fog so the summit wasn't anything impressive for us, but going down from the summit to the perimeter trail was a steep down hill! Would have to be part goat to climb up haha but I fell in love with this trail with the views of the ocean and the great diversity!

Nice hike to a nice lake that’s perfect for swimming!

Great easy walk for all year round. Nice selection of trails, and some beautiful serene scenery. Nicely located geographically in the lower mainland so easy to get to from everywhere. Checkout the a video of the trail here: https://youtu.be/un4YnsKhTG0

Beautiful! Not very muddy, and what mud was there was firm. Recommend getting here early though, parking filled up fast! Only 3 other cars in the lot when we arrived at 9am, completely full when we left at around 12:30. Bathrooms are past the trailhead, across the street.

Awesome hike for views and trail is beautiful. The only downside is that it's busy. The Forest was lovely and we did this pretty quick with our three year old but he's pretty adventurous! check us out @loewenlife for quarry rock and others! Parking is difficult, try to go early.

Great place to watch the sun set at the end of this trail. Very easy and a nice walk all year round

Went down after going up the grind. Hard on the joints but well worth it.

Parked just on the south end of the bridge. Pleasant walk over the bridge spans and great views in both directions. Returned to the parking area and took the short walk down the hill to the beach area. Lots of people fishing and just looking at the water. Very peaceful during the week.

Great little hike. Nice views of the bridge. We had read the previous reviews and did not attempt to hike around the perimeter. For families, you still need to watch little hikers near a few points along the edges.

Fun enough

amazing views

awesome, grin a bare the last 2miles. But it's worth it!
Take food and water for lunch at the top

The tails are marked, but poorly orientation wise. Many trails leading in multiple directions so be prepared to get turned around once or twice. Pay attention to the maps. I essentially spent two hours just marking out my own route - so get creative!

One of the most beautiful destinations I've ever hiked to! Highly recommend - it wasn't TOO difficult with just a day pack. Bring lots of water, warm layers for the top and bug spray! Hiked this in late July in 32° weather.

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!

Beautiful casual hike but I don’t recommend trying to loop it. Next time we’ll stay on the main trail and hike it as an out and back. Everyone is right. It’s a poorly marked trail and can be frustrating if trying to loop.
Still worth it though!

Easy hike with plenty to see and hear. Loved walking through the forest and hearing the ocean waves. Great panoramic views from the highest point, and make sure to head to the end of the Cape Falcon trail to view the secluded black sand beach. We got to the trail head at about 8:45 and only started encountering other hikers on the way back, so go early for more quiet time, as this is a popular route with families. My favorite hike on the coast!

Somewhat steep and tricky descent to the beach, and challenging (for me) coming back up, but totally worth it! We had the beach completely to ourselves and enjoyed exploring. Started on the trail at about 8 and only saw 1 person until we were heading back to the parking lot around 9:30.

Great hike - be prepared that it's all up hill going out. The ending is worth it though!

There was a trail, and a beach, and an island. Whoa!

great training hike.
From Chuckanut it is much more difficult than from the upper parking lot or from the parking lot at barrel springs road.
great view from the top.

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

This is the most rewarding hike I’ve done in BC yet! Truly stunning! It took me about three hours up and about the same down, however I was solo so probably a bit quicker than average. I wore my vibrams five fingers very comfortably until I was at the lake where there’s a lot of loose sharp rock, but nothing unmanageable. I had lots of bug spray and an Off clip on repellant so I wasn’t bothered by bugs at all until I got to the top and met the lazy deer flies, that being said they didn’t bother me too much. I would also recommend bringing a sweater because the glacier creates this nice cool breeze at the top. It is also uphill this whole time so be prepared for that, but it will totally be worth it!
