Fun trail to a beautiful view point! The view from here is better than Mt. Erie in my opinion!

Very peaceful, clean trail. It’s fun watching the squirrels and slugs along the trail. The view on top of sugar loaf is so serene and beautiful.

This is a good cardio/leg workout as it’s a pretty steady incline the entire way up. But the overlook at the top is totally worth it. Trails can get a little confusing, so I recommend printing off a map. Shaded the whole way, so great to do even on a hot day.

Was able to find a parking spot even at noon! Beautiful day out with a gorgeous view. Definitely worth the uphill hike. Will be back again soon!

Pretty good hike! there are multiple trails that branch off from the trailhead and they are numbered. I took trail 215. it was pretty steep 3/4 of the way up. It is a higher elevation gain than 659 feet. Also, it's easy tonget lost amongst the different trails, especially coming down. Trail is well maintained. No bathrooms at the trailhead. The view is pretty amazing and I was surprised to find some wildflowers and succulents!

Great views, a lot of view points. Sign on the parking lot recommends not more than 10 cars on a parking due to COVID19

We’re mostly exploring the Anacortes community forest lands. This is by far my favorite. We hiked on a late afternoon on a Wednesday. We were lucky to see only 1 person coming down on our way up and no one at the top. I’m fairly new to hiking and had to stop a few times to catch my breath, but I am so glad I kept going. Absolutely worth it! There are some narrow spots where you’re walking over rocks with small footholds. Heading back was a little painful on the knees. We’ll definitely do this one again with a blanket so we can sit and enjoy the views!

A good little leg burner to a stunning views of West (Cascades) South (Mt Erie) and East (Islands and Olympic Peninsula). I’ve read it’s a 1000 feet elevation, and it’s fairly steep in some sections, but relatively do able for most people. Views from the top can’t be beat. Go at sunrise for epic light.

Such a beautiful trail with lots of different options to extend your stay. View from Sugarloaf was ok, I think I just prefer the mountains.

Excellent small hike that isn't too far from home. It was our first hike with our new dog and she loved it. Taking a picture of the map at the trailhead definitely helped us stay on track. Small hike but huge reward at the top!
