Shelly Loop had running water down the trail. Avoid after rains.

Just completed this super easy, and totally worth it hike/walk. Ditto to what everyone else has said about the views! Amazing, especially on a beautiful clear day like today. Great family trail, even for little ones. Trail is very well marked. I took the Shelly Loop Trail in my way down. A tiny incline, and tree roots, but not difficult at all. I arrived around noon, and there were only about 8 cars in the lot. WARNING - passed a mom with three young kids who said they were all stung by yellow jackets on the Broom-Tomb Loop Trail, which is the upper extension of Sares Head. I cannot confirm this as I took her warning, and did not go up there. Super disappointed in the amount of irresponsible dog owners that don’t pick up their dogs poo :( BE RESPONSIBLE or don’t bring them! Happy Hiking! Enjoy:)

This is a fairly simple hike up to the bluff and the view is totally worth it! My toddler managed to hike up with us on his own. you won't be disappointed once you get to the viewpoint from Sares trail

My husband and I did this hike with our 3 year old yesterday and it was INCREDIBLE! The sun was out, the trail was only muddy in a few spots, you could hear bees buzzing at the top but never bothered us, the trail is mostly marked well, and it’s super easy for a little toddler to hike by themselves (if they are already used to walking a lot/hiking.) The view at the top is breathtaking! It’s amazing that for such an easy, short hike, you get an incredible view! We had the view to ourselves, too! I was shocked there weren’t more people there, but there are other trails attached to this trail. I highly recommend!

Awesome 30 minute hike for all ages and abilities. It's one of the best kept secrets when it comes to the best place to watch a sunset around Fidalgo Island. It's also a great spot for hammocks.

Lovely hike with many loop options to extend our day out. Outstanding lookouts!!! The clouds broke, sun came out & blue skies greeted us.

This hike is my favorite on Fidalgo Island. Just a short 20 minute hike with minimal climb gives you one of the most impressive and expansive views in Western Washington. It should be rated Easy, anyone of any skill level can do this hike!
