We decided to spend Mother's Day hiking! We have been to Little Cranberry Lake in the Anacortes Community Forest Lands....but had never been to Whistle Lake. I would definitely bring or print a map as there are way too many trails to navigate without one!
|I think this is Mt. Erie...there are trails that|
take you up to Mt. Erie here too!

We hiked all the way around Whistle Lake and Toot Swamp and back to the parking lot. There were muddy areas and puddles, but we traversed them all! Miles and miles of trails here...I think it would be quite a while before you got bored with all of them! We will definitely come back here again!
