The view from the top is spectacular. You can see Fidalgo Bay and numerous islands. It's a short walk from the car to the viewpoints. But you may want to climb down a little to get better photos of Mt. Baker. Rock climbers will enjoy training here.
The views are amazing from up here! I hiked up and walked down. Small pull out by trail 215 started my three mile journey. This is a vertical hike, but worth it. The views are breathtaking. If you drive all the way to the summit, there is a pit toilet, and a few picnic tables, but not much of you're... 更多
Take the time to make the 5 minute drive up to top of Mt. Erie...Can see forever from up there, its a must stop on the Island..Can get great pictures from up there

There are so many great trails to hike and bike with Heart Lake and Whistle Lake are contiguous to the park. There are many skill levels represented, from flat and easy to steep and fairly challenging. I hike the trails in various weather and it is always beautiful.
Once you get up there however there is still some rock hopping and cllimbing around for the really good views. What I'm saying is, it might be hard for your 90 year old mother. I have heard of people hiking up and then being shocked to see people up there who simply drove up. Now you know.
To get here, my husband was the driver and I was the navigator using an iPhone Map app. It wasn't really hard to find and not too far from town. This place has awesome views of the islands in the Puget Sound. Pretty interesting stuff. Best part is capturing awesome sunset views. My husband and I were here well into... 更多
