Beautiful hike with lots of view points and various campsites near by. The hike itself is pretty easy but be sure to bring bug spray because I came home with lots of bites. Lots of spider webs to run into as well. Try to go early to avoid crowds. By the time we left at 9 am the parking lot was full.

Very easy trail with astonished by views of deception pass. Is not super known since most people focus on the other side of the pass. Quite magnificent and good for all skills. There is no lighthouse :-)

Nice morning hike. Saw an eagle, and enjoyed a private beach.

Not well marked, but a really beautiful hike. As a beginner and a hiker of size not the best hike (lots of elevation and very skinny trails) but so much fun and again very beautiful.

great hike as always !!!!

Fairly easy hike with great views of the water. The weather couldn't have been more perfect for us. The sun was out for about an hour then we got nice cloud coverage. Our pup loved this hike along with the north beach one and Goose Rock summit.

Beautiful easy hike although the trail loop on the maps here is out of date as lighthouse point trail around north side of the outlet is currently very overgrown and dangerous in some places. Path now cuts through the middle next to a big hollow tree. Fantastic views and scenery the whole hike.

beautiful views but super narrow trails and not marked well, I recommend downloading offline maps/directions.

as for the trail; there's is not lighthouse anymore and all mosses at the top of the island, be careful with footing. My kiddos were able to hike up and my suggestion is great hiking shoes with grip!

There are difficult hikes in here as well as flat ground. Be sure to pick your trail wisely as there are about 30! The full hike around the lake usually takes a couple hours, it’s gorgeous!
There are smaller trails that can fill just twenty minutes as well.

Easy trail for the whole family. Beware ferry traffic and tulip traffic (we went in mid-April).

Great trail that circles the lake, there's also a small cave on the northeast part.

Just like all the other's have mentioned.... great views, great wildlife, very enjoyable hike....could be a bit slick in spots.

Beautiful hike, but note you cannot complete the loop as the map indicates. Also, they might want to rename the island to Green reflector point as there is NO lighthouse there any longer. Beautiful hike with many water views. Only real challenging part of the trail is where it’s obviously no longer maintained and had to turn back

Great views, wildflowers were blooming, saw seals even! Trail is a bit slick and muddy in spots.

Wish it was better marked but LOvED this hike! Beautiful scenery and fun for all

Nice easy trail. we will be back to fish soon.

nice little loop with many side trails. we will be back to fish the laske with the kids.

This was a beautiful hike. There is a great variety of things to see. I enjoyed the undulating terrain. We had a group consisting of young & old who found it to be slightly challenging at a few points but was easily overcome with little assistance and rest periods. I like that there are many different modalities that were able to participate as well as the multiple different routes that were available. I found walking sticks useful it help me over the rocks and roots. Highly recommend!

An easy walk along a mostly paved path (some boardwalk and dirt too) but great to take a stroller. Pretty scenic views along the water's edge.

Great day with kids and BFFs. Not to hot not to cold, very little mud!

Beautiful views of water, islands and mountains - what more can you ask for?

Beautiful Hike. would go again in the spring/summer to get the best sunset view. went while it was raining. So awesome

Great views even on a cloudy day. Enjoyed walking around on a Sunday and exploring the beaches. Dog friendly but be careful as there are some steep cliffs :)

Moderate! Lot of up and downs. Beautiful, saw only one other person. You need this app. To remain on course!!!!! Lots of trails!!

Great cliffs for jumping off. Can also hike over to Heart lake

I love this trail! You can hike it all times of the year. And it has many trails leading off so you can extend your hike however much you choose.

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.

Beautiful views. Like many have said the trails on the north side of the point are really bad, potentially dangerous. They're really steep! We brought a 1st grader and a dog and fell many times. It got really bad so we turned around. Great smooth hike if you keep to the loop on the south side. Would go again.

Beautiful views but poorly marked at times
