Easy, one hour hike. Be careful at the end when it puts you on the main road in a blind spot with cars that go 35 mph.

*nice spot for quicky hike- can add to length with Erie mt, etc., if you want. *pretty little lake- fishermen too. *nice family spot.

We’re mostly exploring the Anacortes community forest lands. This is by far my favorite. We hiked on a late afternoon on a Wednesday. We were lucky to see only 1 person coming down on our way up and no one at the top. I’m fairly new to hiking and had to stop a few times to catch my breath, but I am so glad I kept going. Absolutely worth it! There are some narrow spots where you’re walking over rocks with small footholds. Heading back was a little painful on the knees. We’ll definitely do this one again with a blanket so we can sit and enjoy the views!

Very nice hike though I agree with other reviews that it would be nice to avoid the walk along the road. Also, I have noticed that according to my other GPS tracking device this hike is longer than 2.7 miles. I show it about 4 miles. I have noticed this on other AllTrails hikes. Has anyone had this experience?

I would do it again, but worth taking a longer loop and avoiding that road section. It’s pretty bad right where the road hugs the bank.

A good little leg burner to a stunning views of West (Cascades) South (Mt Erie) and East (Islands and Olympic Peninsula). I’ve read it’s a 1000 feet elevation, and it’s fairly steep in some sections, but relatively do able for most people. Views from the top can’t be beat. Go at sunrise for epic light.

Nice, easy relaxing hike. Clearly marked trails. Great view of the lake.

Such a beautiful trail with lots of different options to extend your stay. View from Sugarloaf was ok, I think I just prefer the mountains.

Excellent small hike that isn't too far from home. It was our first hike with our new dog and she loved it. Taking a picture of the map at the trailhead definitely helped us stay on track. Small hike but huge reward at the top!
