The views were great when we made it to the top. That being said, it was rough getting up there cause the trail is barely there. Up the hill with all the fallen logs was kind of just a free for all. There’s also some type of poison ivy that we accidentally grabbed onto and definitely regret! If there was a trail I’d rate it higher for the views!

Tried hiking this trail but with all of the logging it's a mess to get thru and there is a sign saying "This is not a park. No trespassing".

Went back in April. Trail is destroyed from the logging, but we powered up and though the mess to get to the top. The views from Big Rock are awesome. Hopefully it grows back and is beautiful but for now, not much more than a 1/2 mile no holds barred rally to the top of the rock for views.

The trail's been destroyed by logging activities. The lower part of the trail was hard to navigate due to the branches and downed trees.

The trailhead is a mud pit, but beyond that is fine. Not overgrown. At least four trees down over the trail that we had to climb over. No "no trespassing" signs. Rocks slippery at the very top when you need to scramble up the last bit.

Great trail - short but with fantastic views of Baker from the top on a clear day. There is some confusion over the trail being open or not - I contacted Skagit Land Trust, who informed me that while the trail is Skagit County Land, there is no formal trail or trailhead and at the moment hiking is disallowed. They told me they are working to open the park as an official trail ASAP. Not saying don’t go, just know that whether or not you’re supposed to be there is a toss-up.

Cute trail. A nice quick hike. Relatively steep, takes like 30ish minutes up and down. Looks over a neighborhood and some farmlands along w a lake. Slippery after rain.

Fun little trail with a decent climb and great views at the top. Overgrown a bit but nothing unmanageable. Only about 35-40 min if you just go up and down. There were no Private Property or No trespassing signs anywhere. Parked in gravel pull out area on East side of Hwy 9 right past Knapp road if heading S on 9. Trail head is directly across.

There were no private property or no trespassing signs. We pulled off highway 9 and took the trailhead from there. We scouted our the climbing area too and didn’t climb this time around, but will definitely be back to try it in the future. The approach to the climbing is pretty overgrown, but the hikers trail was well maintained. Just beware of broken glass. Clearly this is an area that folks drinking who don’t care enough to pack out visit.

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.

This trail shouldn’t even be listed in the app. Private property and no trespassing signs posted at the trail entrance.
