Kids can climb a small mountain and see a magnificent panorama of the San Juan Islands, the Olympic Mountains, Lake Erie, Whidbey Island, and the Strait of Juan de Fuca as the reward for this short summit hike. The views are almost as good as those from Mount Erie, which you can drive to, but your children will not be crowded by motorbikes and the mobs who drive to the summit on a clear day. Take a lunch and a map, and plan to watch ship traffic in the strait and the sailboats on Lake Erie, and to soak in the beauty of the drowned mountain range that has become the San Juans.
