this is a stop not to be missed when you are in the Anacortes area. Our foreign visitors almost couldn't believe their eyes. We take everyone up here to feast their eyes on the scenery below them - Campbell Lake, the San Juan Islands, views to the south of Whidbey. You drive up there on a somewhat narrow and curvy...

The views from atop Mt. Erie are fantastic. You can see over the San Juan Islands and out to Vancouver Island.

Lived in the area for a few years and enjoyed Mt Erie several times. Best view for 4th of July fireworks, brought a blanket and sat on the rocks.

Another curvy winding road worth the trip up and down. Just take it slow...it's not a race to the top/bottom. :)

Mt. Erie Park is in the Heart Lake section of Anacortes Community Forest Lands. The paved road to the top of Mount Erie is only the beginning. There are also trails to the top. At the base of the mountain, there is a parking area and an informative kiosk, and the start of some trails. There are no restroom facilities... More

One can drive or hike to the top of Mt Erie. The views are outstanding and well worth the effort. There are also trails that will take you to Whistle Lake or to the top of Sugarloaf.

Viewing platforms with dazzling views of surrounding Skagit County and Whidbey Island. Please read the Memorial plaque in the parking area at the top. Young man went off trail and tried to look over the edge. I was there that day and it reminds us all to cherish those we love. Enjoy and be Safe

Awesome drive to the top of the mountain just a few minutes from town center. Lots of himing inthe area. Terrific view of ocean, mkuntian ranges and many other sights. The day was cloudy and overcast so we weren't able to see all that we hoped.

You can go up by car to the very top and enjoy the super-impressive views over the islands. Don't miss to watch the birds flying around there and enjoy the pure nature.
