Great views in a short distance. Uphill with switchbacks going in and downhill going out. Good hike for those who want to hike but may not be completely fit and ready for more advanced hikes.

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 :-)

There is a nice view from the top making the uphill trek worth it.

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.

Nice, easy relaxing hike. Clearly marked trails. Great view of the lake.

Hiked 1100 12May2018, Mothers Day. Very busy at thr top and at thr lower parking lot but quiet up the hill. Trail is always well maintained but can be a little confusing if you don't pay attention. We always just stay on 215 to 228 which should take you to the top. Its a pretty steep grade to the top if you're not in the best of shape but definitely doable. A decent amount of wildflowers but nothing crazy that i saw. Always a nice short hike with gorgeous views of the San Juans, Olympics and Cascades. highly recommended

I really enjoyed most parts of this hike. The only negative being how confusing some areas were. I’m glad I had this app to track myself because I’d probably still be lost in the woods somewhere. I started at the trailhead at 7 AM on a Wednesday and there was only one other car there. On the way down there still weren’t many people. I have a feeling this place gets crowded though, so get there early!

short to medium hike. Low to medium elevation gain. Not a particularly well marked trail but not hard to figure out. 3.5 star view point at the end.

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).

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

nice little challenge if you're looking for something quick. absolutely gorgeous views, and tons of Moss and some wildflowers in spots.

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!

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

A nice paved, dry trail leads to stunning view at the summit.

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.

Beautiful day, not crowded. A little muddy in spots, but manageable.

Not much wooded trail nice views

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

Good workout & view!!! The trail is confusing though it took me about 5 outings to figure out how to get all the way to Erie. Perfect for dogs and exercise

Nice easy peaceful place to walk.

Really liked sugar loaf, Mt Erie was to crowded. The trail system is super confusing. Get a map or take a very good picture of the trailhead billboard map. We took a wrong turn and ended up walking on the road for a bit to get up to Erie.

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.

What a view! Nice moderate hike to wake the legs up after hours of driving. Used trails 215 to 228 and felt like that made the ascent short but inclined. Locating the trail and parking were a breeze but no bathroom from the south trailhead.

Started off at Mt. Erie Viewpoint parking area on trail 215 straight up to 228 on the left (top lookout area) then to 226 onto 225 then down 320 to Heart Lake. Great workout, steep incline, beautiful views of Mt. Erie and San Juans. Glad it was a clear day. Snow Free, muddy in some spots. Slick over the rocks

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.

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!
