Hike to the Summit of Mt. Erie

5 Miles Round Trip - 900 ft gain - Out-and-Back Trail

Trail 215 - Search Nearby - Added by Scott Kranz

On this hike, take in amazing shots of your views of Fidalgo Bay, Whidbey Island, Glacier Peak, and Rainier.

To start this hike, jump on trail 215 for a short distance of about a 1/4 mile. From here, continue until you cross trail 320 and head left onto it. Stay on 320 until you come across trail 230.

Take 230 uphill (resembles an old fire road) toward the ravine just above a creek. From here, head onto trail 207, charging up a series of switchbacks until you encounter another junction. At the junction, head left on 216 up to Erie's summit. You may see a few cars driving to the summit as you're scrambling up the trail to make it to the top. Don't worry, you earned the view and your rest once you're up there.

Good day hike

Not a ton of people even on a very nice Saturday afternoon. Well maintained trails, plenty of parking, porta potty at the summit and lots of options for side trails. I'll definitely be doing this one again!

Awesome hike for new hikers! Because the road offers multiple starting points, its a hike that is open to all levels!
