Followed the 101 trail all the way around the outskirts of the lake. Very rooty with rocks. Enjoyed the 2mile journey, not to hard of a hike but enough to raise your heart rate just a bit.

Fun leisurely hike. Not much of an incline till after the lake. Lake was nice tho. Nothing crazy. Got stuck in the dark going back

Love this hike even though the recent fire has closed some of my favorite parts you can go the other way and it's wonderful.

We enjoyed the well labeled, well maintained trails. Recent fire blocked off the opportunity to do a nice loop hike as planned. Very family friendly. However, if you are looking for a wilderness type of experience, this is not it. More like a Seattle Metro Park.

A local favorite. Be advised that as of late august the east side of the lake is indefinitely closed due to a forest fire.

I loved this lake so much that after my hike around it, I came back with kayaks and floated around it. Very easy hike and small lake. Loved the area with dead trees springing up through the lake and the beautiful swampy area just south of the lake. Trails are taken care of and properly labeled. Love the resting/view spots along the lake. Can't wait to try the rope swing!

I run a variation of the Cranberry Lake trails a few times a week. Depending on where you start, the trail can be out and back, a loop, or point to point. Some of the trails may be a bit sketchy for the overprotective parent, but overall it is a pretty easy family friendly trail. Some trails are limited to foot, horse, bikes, motorcycles, or a combination of any of those. Check the city of Anacortes' website and with the parks department for info. I think maps are available in town at the bike shop at 17th Street and Commercial Avenue.

In the Anacortes Community Forest Lands this has some wide jeep trail that connects the Single track around the lake. some easy family trails and some rocky rooty challenging trails.
