Frangrance Lake

Date: May 16, 2010
Distance: about 5 miles
Elevation Gain: about 1000 ft
Time: 2.5 hours
Difficulty: Easy/Moderate
Weather: Cloudy and Overcast
My Route:
We followed the well marked signs from the trail head to the lake, around the lake and back with a detour to the view point.
A nice quiet walk, not far from Bellingham. The trail is very well maintained and sufficiently signed to not cause any confusion.

The trail goes up up up, making it less easy than I had expected. There are a number of benches along the way to stop and rest.

Despite being on the coast, the viewpoint offers the only view of the water. In other areas, the forest hides the bay.

Trail Head:
