All of you guys are such wimps. You can access big rock from the road that goes up to skagit highlands from the big rock grocery roundabout area. YOU WILL NOT PASS ANY NO TRESPASSING SIGNS HERE. As long as you avoid the trail that leads straight from division to big rock it's chill. There were a few scattered remains of homeless camps on he way up this trail. Also this area has been recently damaged by the fire so use caution on this trail as it's on the steep side and the burnt dirt and logs are quite unstable. I haven't hiked this recently but it was in the last 3 months. Trail is good, until they put no trespassing signs up in gonna access it from here.

The trail is now closed and a fairly new sign and gate with "NO PARKING. PRIVATE PROPERTY. NO TRESPASSING. NOT PUBLIC ACCESS TO BIG ROCK." posted on it. Call me a wuss, but I don't particularly wanna get shot trespassing on someone's land. Super bummed about this

difficult to find

We parked on the side of hwy 9 and took the path across the street. It was short, about 1 mile, decent incline. You kind of have to rock climb to get to the top, but nothing too difficult. It got the blood pumping. It was pretty, you can see almost 360*

Big Rock has 2 approaches. One a very gradual trail and the other shorter more inclined trail. Big Rock also has a couple short bolted routes for climbing. An easy hike for kids and people with bad backs.
