Fairly easy trail close to Anacortes. You can make it as hard or as long as you like.

relatively easy. some steep parts. great view from the top and some nice places to stop for a snack or picnic along the way. for those just looking for the view you can also drive to the top of Mt. Erie. However the road to the Mt. Erie may still be under construction.

great view from the top.

Went with my son he's 36 and I'm 57. This was a very relaxing and scenic hike. It has several different trails you can take that all end up at the lake which is very beautiful.

Beautiful scenery and well groomed for the most part. The parking lot is decent but small. There is no bathroom at the trail head for Sugarloaf, but there is a Texaco a couple miles down the road before arriving to the trailhead. **Beware!!** There are SO many trails and it would be much better to be prepared with a map in hand of all numbered routes. Have your trail set before starting due to the number of pathways around the mountain. We started at Sugarloaf and moved on to Mt. Erie. I was bummed to find out that at the top of Mt. Erie, there is a parking lot. It lost its initial appeal since people at the top didn't all make the effort to get to the top. The sight to see if gorgeous though and worth it whether hiking or driving to it.
