Great, easy trail.

Mostly easy terrain since it’s a road, except the mile or so of trail downhill after the big lookout point. That felt a bit like hiking down a muddy ravine at some points, but not bad enough to need poles. I’d definitely recommend doing the loop counter clockwise for this reason. Glad I downloaded the map as there were some parts of the trail that weren’t super clear.

Completed the original and new section of the trail. We measured the trail with an iwatch3 and iwatch4 and got the same results: 10miles with 2215 feet of elevation gain. The trail volunteers did a great job....this is a great trail. Lots of new growth and old growth forests. Can’t wait for the trail extension next year.

Great trail through the woods around the lake. Beautiful scenery and a nice wide well maintained trail. Great for a dog friendly walk. Very nice park with washrooms.

Beautiful, well-maintained trail with easy access off Chuckanut Drive via Larrabee State Park. Go early if you prefer the trail to yourself.

Any trail in the Northwest is going to beautiful in it's own way, and this was no different. I was thoroughly disappointed by the so called "viewpoint" (not worth the extra mile), but the scenery along the way was nice.

Great trail with good elevation changes, well-maintained, great lake, shaded the whole way. This would also be really great for trail running.

Very pretty area and easy terrain. There is a tiny part in the middle that has some sheer rock that would be very slippery if it was wet. The beach is beautiful. Most of it is shaded with a small stream running alongside. Lots of roots so just keep an eye out.

Beautiful trails system. You could spend all day exploring the trails around here. ((“Seriously all trails catch up”)) there are many trails and there’s a waterfall . The look out in this hike actually doesn’t provide much of a view. Just tree tops. But you cannot see the lake. Funny story. I got to the top and a women who was there very nonchalantly says. “Hi, do you drive a blue car? You left your headlights on” Well that’s great to find out now... you know what I said earlier about being able to spending all day? I don’t suggest doing that and finding out towards the end that your headlights were on kinda takes a little bit of the fun out of it.

This is a good workout.

This is an incredible hike. After dropping down a dramatic 150-step staircase, you will wander past huge, moss-covered rock walls with trees clinging miraculously to the smallest footholds. This portion is pretty magical, making you stop frequently for ooo’ing, ahhh’ing and general marveling. At the gate about 1.5 miles in, we went north to go around the lake. You’re above the lake for most of the hike until you round the north end and head south where some great snack spots can be found. Forging southward leaving the lake, the trail becomes less trafficked, and then quite a scramble at the far south stretch. I rate it as Hard at this point, with a very rough, rocky, and steep trail once you leave the state park border. As you cross into the recovering clearcut, there is a sign letting hikers know that a horseman cleared this portion of the trail. I’m grateful to that hardworking pair because the view they made accessible once you claw your way up is incredible, i mean it, INCREDIBLE. A full 360* view of Mt. Baker, the Sisters, the Cascade AND Olympic ranges, the San Juan Islands... you get it all! Bring lunch and plan to camp out for a bit because it’s amazing. The final leg back to the gate is a relief, a steady decline back into the park. Again past the rock walls... remember that stair case? Take it slow and know that it’s not as long as you remember when you came down it. ;-)

This trail was easy in a lot of areas going out. The downhill parts involved a bit of technical footing as there were many slippery rocks in the pathway. The coming back was about 70% uphill, so be sure to save some energy and muscle strength, and almost easier to do than the downhill counterparts....almost. The views were spectacular though, and well worth the hike. (And it’s also more like a 6.8 mile hike, out and back. )

Really muddy for the first part of the switchback up to the trail. One fallen tree over the path but easily stepped over. Did full route plus the ridge line path. Not difficult but you’ll need to look where to put your feet. Lots of exposed roots.

This trail was over 10 miles. Worth it! The views are stunning. You’ll get sweeping views of the sound on one side at the top and a view of Lake Samish and Mt. Baker on the other side! You can totally see Lost Lake there are several places to do this. This hike is definitely moderate! Bring water if you do the whole loop. I would highly recommend this trail.

It was a great hike, a little bit difficult for beginners but it was worth it. We were there early in the morning on a Saturday,not so much people and we really got to enjoy the walk and nature. By 10:30-11am people and tourists got there and it was crowded. The pat was clean and it's great for dogs too.

The trail was amazing!!!!i would go a lot so plz go!it is great for family’s! It is rocky and there are some bugs but like flies so it is ok I would go so go now or where are you at!!!!!Best view and there are looking points Nice trees so go go No dog allowed But fun Highly recommended for all ages Trail is a very peaceful place no pets there are some climbing parts that may challenge some if you’re careful you might see some trout hanging out on the water surface Just the right length

Great hike! Slow elevation gain with beautiful end results (and the journey there is full of beautiful foliage). The perfect hike if you’re starting to get back into hiking shape!

The mushrooms are out in force!

good exercise? good exercise. i’ll bring a hammock and a beer next time—the peninsula at Pine Lake is an enticing place to relax.

quite the ascent straight out of the truck, once you get past the elevation climb it is a relaxful beautiful place.

A Nice easy 1.23 mile walk. Not much elevation, gravelled with a few waterlogged spots, but lovely views of the lake with lots of active waterfowl.

Great, well maintained trail. Stopped here for a stretch and brisk walk after an hour in the car. Not difficult and great for a family or pets (leash required). Mostly hard packed gravel with a few decent size puddles during the rainy season
