Begin at Cama Beach State Park. The trail to Cranberry Lake is gentle and well- groomed. At the West end of the lake a weaker trail continues along the North edge allowing a bit more travel. Visitors can then head South on the Cross Island Trail to the edge of Camano State Park.

Family hike. Easy, well maintained trail. Kinda disappointed with the lake at the end of the trail. It is a pretty spot.

Easy, well-kept, beautiful trail! Doable for kids, too. Bring the bug spray! There were lots of berries along the trail, too. I wasn't sure I'd be able to get my family to leave since they kept stopping for more berries, even though they were still tart.

Went up to cranberry lake the trail was nice and dry and easy to get to. Once you got to the lake the bugs were horrible!! Next time will bring bug spray. Besides the bugs it was a nice little hike.

Fun hike taken early morning with our kids (almost 3 yr old and 10 month old). We entered at the Dry Lake Rd Trailhead, which is downhill the entire way then uphill the way back. Quite a few spots with massive mud puddles—made it difficult with a stroller, but otherwise it was fine.

It’s a nice easy trail and light traffic. I would give higher rating but its not all old growth forest and I’m spoiled by some of the other Washington trails.
