A steep drive up but worth it. You can see all around. Anacortes, Campbell Lake, the sound. And there are nice trails to several lakes that you can do. A great way to get oriented to the area if this is a first visit.

We were looking for a short hike around Anacortes and went for Mt. Erie. You have to go through several connecting trails which can definitely get confusing without a map. Purchase one at locations around town (or take a picture of the map at the trail head with your phone). The trails were pretty steep off and on as well as narrow and heavily forested. And the bugs are everywhere. EVERYWHERE. We chose the most direct path and the hike ended up being about 2-2.5 miles one way, and you gain about 900 ft elevation. We actually chose to walk down the ROAD on the descent which ended up being really fast. It was a nice hike to do once, but we are headed to Olympic National Park next and think we'll find better there.

The panoramic view from the top of Mount Erie is worth the steep, short drive up. The small park is well maintained except for the road.

The views from the top of this Park are fantastic. You can see the various islands surrounding Fidalgo Island. Also plan to visit Cap Sante in Anacortes for more water level views. The City of Anacortes owns the Park and enables the visitor to see views which are absolutely beautiful

The road is not totally well maintained and although passable I wouldn't recommend large vehicles as it could get tricky.
