A great area to walk or hike. The park offers great scenery, wildlife and photo opportunities. There are limited facilities, but a short drive either direction to services.

You can drive or hike this place. Either way you get to enjoy the magnificent views of Islands. There are multiple views and you cant go wrong on a clear day.

Its a short curvy drive to the top. But if you are careful you will be fine. Its amazing how quick temperature changes with altitude.

Sometimes it gets crowded for parking but you can park along the way which is rare. Definitely a small, fun filled drive on a sunny day. Don't miss it if you are staying or visiting Anacortes.

We hike this mountains trails quite often. One of the most toughest hikes is Sugar Loaf then on up to the top of Mt. Erie. That is an uncrowded hike but worth it.

Mt. Erie is the highest point near Anacortes, WA. The drive up to the top is reasonably non-scary for those of us who are afraid of heights. At the top, there are amazing views from at least 3 places. People do walk up the hill, and I've seen hikers and heard there are rock climbers who like to climb there. A warning; there have been falling deaths, so be careful!

I went up there at Sunset, however, I got the impression not many people know about this place as I was completely alone up there. Loved the great views of the Puget Sound, you could catch a lot of detail. Absolutely worth the ride up there.
