Mount Erie


Day Hike - Mount Erie

13 miles, 2800', 2-2.25 MPH average moving speed, visit many of the highlights of the Anacortes Community Forest Lands, two big lakes, many beautiful miles of forest, including madronas, and several wonderful viewpoints (if the skies are clear).

  • Strenuous
  • Challenging
  • Mileage: 13.0 mi
  • Elevation Gain: 2,800 ft
  • High Point Elevation: 1,264 ft
  • Pace: 2.25 MPH average moving speed

9:00 at the Heart Lake Trailhead, no pass, no privy, a google maps pin for the location

I need a ride, from the East Sunset Way trailhead in Issaquah at 7:30 would be ideal, the Northgate Park & Ride at 7:45 would also work. 

Here is the route
