Family Friendly Close to the parking lot, wide doubletrack trail, easy navigation, a few steep sections but nothing technical or rugged, and excellent views for the second half of the hike.

Need to Know

The parking lot closest to the trail is the Larrabee State Park main parking lot located at 245 Chuckanut Drive Bellingham WA 98226. It requires a Discover Pass or paying a $10 per day fee for a temporary pass. This parking lot is small and fills up quickly on weekends. Across the street is more parking near the car camping lot but it is slightly further away.

Description

A relatively smooth 4-mile climb with just under 2,000 feet of elevation gain. The last mile is the steepest. Start on Fragrance Lake Road and after about 3/4 of a mile there will be a fork in the road. Take the right-hand side split and follow the sign for Burnout. On a clear and sunny day, you'll be greeted with epic views of the San Juans, Puget Sound, and Olympic National Park. A wide and relatively open "summit" allows for great photos or a picnic. This trail can be used as an out-and-back or you can connect to the Lost Lake trail and make it a bigger loop.
