Took my dog to the main lookout today. Gorgeous views and sunset. Started the trail from Chuckanut Dr at 1:44 PM and back to the car at 5:20PM. I started little too late. It got so dark the last mile before the car. But I used my phone flashlight almost to the car before totally out of battery. 8 miles roundtrip with 1900 ft elevation gain. My little pup American Bully was such a trooper

So many trails for mountain biking! I love this area, and it is truly a mountain bikers playground.

Great trail! So many beautiful sites. Great workout but, not too hard. Be sure to take the small off trails to the overlook and waterfall on the backside of the lake.

Walked up the Erie Mountain Drive to trail 26 and took it. Branched off at trail 216 to go to the Mount Erie lookout. Walked the road all the way back down. Round trip, it was 5.7 km. Nice short hike. I'd say the trail is maybe moderate in difficulty..? We didn't have any trouble with it. Views from the top were incredible. We hit it on a sunny day with low-lying cloud below the lookout - just gorgeous!

One of my favorite hikes in the area! Beautiful, well maintained trail with a sweet, woodsy fragrance that's impossible to describe. Linger at the lake for a swim & packed lunch.
Will be a little challenging for new hikers but on the easy side for stronger ones.

Awesome trail for hiking! Beautiful fall foliage. If you reverse the loop, it makes a doable trail run too. Love this trail!

Be prepared to climb up hill a lot! The view on top was amazing. If you’ve never been here bring a camera or phone to capture the moment. It has some distance to it as well so be realistic with your abilities before trying this hike. I loved every minute of it and would recommend this hike to anyone reading.

Quick but invigorating 2-hour hike with lots of Fall color on this late October day. Be sure to take the .2 mile hop out to the view point overlooking Bellingham Bay and the San Juan islands, and the .75 mile loop around the little lake. (This makes for a total distance 5 miles, up and back to the parking lot.) Enjoy a handful of pretty spots on the lake edge for snacks and the pretty view. A classic Bellingham hike with easy-moderate difficulty.

Hiked on Saturday 21s of Oct. Weather was perfect and hike was very colorful with fall foliage.

Lake was very pretty, with loop around entire lake. We were graced why the presence of a bald eagle in a tree on the west side of the lake, too.

Trail is in perfect condition. If you haven’t hiked the trail, you find the trail head in the Larrabee State Park lot, on the East side of Chuckanut drive, just south of the Larrabee State Park Campground. Even on a Saturday, the trail wasn’t heavily used. A few mountain bikers, possibly 6 other groups of hikers. .

Great hike. Easy overall with a great view! Super good for dogs!

I love hitting this trail with my dogs. Gorgeous Autumn color painted the forests. Blue waters mirror the sky. It’s heaven for me

Beautiful Fall hike up to a tree-framed view of the tip of Mount Baker and just a hint of Lake Whatcom below. Oodles of mushroom varieties to be seen along the way (in October). Take a left at the loop if you want to get the elevation gain early and have a shallower descent coming home.

The lake was beautiful and echoey, also the mushrooms were cool

I thought I had reviewed already! great training hike going through some great changes! may become part of the Galbraith trail network! Lots of work being done on this trail!

this trail is in my neighborhood and l do it on a regular basis. Now is undergoing a great change. It looks like is going to be also part of a mountain bike trail! we're very close to the Galbraith trail network. So excited!

Great workout, prepare to climb, climb, climb! I love this one for the ease of accessibility and crowds. I would definitely feel safe hiking this one alone and it’s also a great hike to bring out of town visitors on as it’s challenging and yet still doable, and has great payoff with beautiful views.

Nice little trail for hiking, and running. Very beautiful. Would be a pretty nice for mountain biking but they are not aloud.

Great trail, lots of switch backs, beautiful surroundings with the blanket of ferns amongst majestic trees. The view of the city and bay from the west side is stunning and there’s also a view of Mt. Baker on the southeast side. We will return

off road driving

Hi, can anyone give me more information about how i could be able to drive my jeep on off road trails. Because i heart that i have to take a test first, before goig there, is that true?

Love this hike, definitely a climb but so worth the view. Got up early and did it at sunrise, there was still a layer of fog on the water and the ship-man it made for a beautiful hike. It’s a challenge but a goody. Parking is limited so I recommend getting there early!

Really great trail that doesn't take all day. Perfect level for people just strarting to hike and arent in perfect shape. The entire trail is in the shade and is just beautiful. Takes just over an hour walking.

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

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.

moderate 2.2 miles up with a few spots to swim. water is warm. mosquitos are out. if you find a gray lululemon ballcap, you can keep it :)

Beautiful hike. Accessible for our 6 and 4 y.o. boys. Our only regret was that the pond is not accessible from the trail.

One of my favorites to hike, hoping to eventually explore the caves.

very easy, but slightly steep going up. bring your bathing suits...saw many people enjoying the lake.

Pretty decent trail. I did the upper trail and it was a good incline most of the way. I wish the view at the top showed a little more, probably wouldn't be worth it if it wasn't a completely clear day. But I still enjoyed it!
