We haven’t been hiking since last Fall and jumped right into a hard skill-level trail. This one isn’t the most scenic, but will definitely challenge you. Steep is the key word whether you are going uphill or down. As soon as you think a nice break has arrived, BAM, another steep section presents itself. There are much prettier hikes in WA, but this was something to do to get the heart rate up and be one with nature. I’m giving this trail a 3 star because it wasn’t scenic enough. We have been spoiled by Mt. Rainier National Park.

Great dog friendly trail to get you out of the house in the time of social distancing. Parking lot was almost full, but everybody respected space. Not much of a traditional mountain with a proper summit, but still fun and refreshing.

Great workout! The first mile is steep so be ready to feel the burn. But then I turned off at the cedar trail and it immediately turned into switchbacks and deep woods. as I got further in , the wind kicked up in the treetops and the temp dropped. It was just gorgeous and eerie.(early morning). I will be doing this one again!

Nice workout through a PNW lush forest and super close to Bellingham. If you're looking for a view, turn back at the Raptor Ridge viewpoint; if you want the extra workout, turn back at the intersection with the Lost Lake Trail, as suggested in Alltrails. The day I hiked there was snow falling in the Chuckanuts! Beautiful.

The first 1.6 miles are all up hill with a decent gradient. This hike ends at the intersection with another trail and not a view point if that's what you're looking for. Theres raptor ridge viewpoint along the way, but that's the only view besides trees and rocks on this hike. This is put together from other trails and is not called out on any signage. The trails themselves are maintained and do not have any real obstacles.

I loved this hike! Great workout, nice and covered, and beautiful rewards at the top! The lakes are stunning and well worth the hike to top. I can’t wait to hike this again.

The incline is no joke but that being said if you are use to steep inclines you shouldn't have a problem. It does get a lot easier about a mile and a half in, but to get to that mile and a half... boi oh boi.

Terrific hike. Very steep initially. Almost 1000’ in the first mile. Consider combining this trail with other options. I added Cedar Lake, Lost Lake, Cyrus Gates Overlook, and Fragrance Lake (and then looped back via the Interurban Trail). The network of paths on the mountain is so vast you can make all sorts of fun combinations.

*beautiful deep woods. *went to south lost lake for a couple more miles. *cedar and pine lakes trail gets a lot of traffic, but once off on hemlock trail to rapture ridge, it seemed less traveled. *dogs loved it too- lots of water.

Great hike for the more ambitious adventurers. Very steep so you’ll get a workout! Lots of moss covering huge western red cedars, hemlocks and Douglas fir.

The first mile or so (can't remember) is a bit steap, but the path is not technical at all. Once you get to the top, its rolling walkways and flat areas abound. The view is OK, apparently better than Oyster Dome for busyness. Something about the area makes the forest cozy. Weather was fantastic, path was quite dry.

actually very pleasant. nice views and never too far from the road. for my first real hike in ages it wasnt hard as advertised. probably not for people with bad knees though. went up to chuckanut falls, peaceful area, not too much foot traffic.
