Larrabee State Park is a 2,683-acre camping park with 8,100 feet of saltwater shoreline on Samish Bay near Bellingham in northwest Washington. The park features two freshwater lakes, coves and tidelands. Sunsets are gorgeous. A variety of non-motorized, multiple-use trails wind through the park.
Straight up and straight down, it'll leave you huffing and puffing and then running all the way back down. Took me 2hrs up and 1:30hr down. i started at 12 and had lots of traffic on the trail and at the dome. Really great overall but prep your knees and bring your poles!
I thought this trail and lake were a serious gem! Easy to follow paths but significant gain in elevation for the relatively short distance (be prepared to huff a little). Lookout excursion well worth it. Can't wait to swim next summer when it's warmer.
Great hike. Got there at 10:15 am and glad we did - we passed more than 50 people on the way down, so the oyster dome would have been very crowded if we had started at noon.
This is a 7 mile out and back not 5 mile. Took us 1:45 up and 1:15 back. Spectacular views at the dome! Highly recommended.
