An unbelievably scenic hike the whole route. Some brief climbs up and down, but quite easy overall. Lots of lovely spots for a picnic by the water.

Many interconnecting trails--hike, bike, dirt bike, horseback. Pretty low traffic today. Trail is in excellent condition. Large trees, nice island views at the top, and a relatively low impact hike.

Beautiful trail, well maintained, parking area and bathroom facilities. Great for all skill levels. Breathtaking views of the San Juan Islands.

Interesting experience today to say the least. We arrived at the trailhead around 4:15 pm thinking we'd have time to hike this quick 2 mile trail. Headed up the trail as the sun set was hitting the horizon, such a beautiful sight to see. For some odd reason my GPS wasn't locating the trail on may downloaded map? It was taking us on side trails till we ended up getting lost in the brush trying to make our way off the peak. End result being the park ranger waiting for us until we returned to our car. All in all, beautiful trail, well maintained, easy to moderate at times. Discovery Pass needed. Restrooms and big parking area.

Nice trail, great views of San Juan Island. Very rustic hike, very generous to see loaner hiking poles and leashes available for those who forgot. Easy/Moderate hike great for all skill levels.
