Description

One of many "Blue Lakes" in Washington, this is the one "by Mt. Baker". This lake is extremely gorgeous, with its turquoise/blueish green water and cliff-lined shores. This is one lake not to miss! It is small, yet carries a big impact. The hike itself is short, and the lake is pretty small, but both are very memorable. The lake is a perfect spot to go fishing, swimming, or even kayaking. To get a better view, climb the Dock Butte Trail to enjoy a view of the lake from above.

Short Hike: A short hike along the Blue Lake Trail.

Family Friendly: It is very easy to access for little ones.

Gem Type: Lake

Dry - I'd recommend a 4x4 vehicle to get up the gravel road to the trailhead. The snow has melted, and it's a lovely trail!
