Hike to the Summit of Mt. Erie
Washington › Trail 215
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.
