Great trail! I did it 05-07-2020 and it was a bit muddy in parts, but manageable. Once you get up on the ridge trail you have fantastic views of Mount Baker!

Lovely day! Took the North lost lake loop, instead of the south, it was a little muddy, and there are some trees across the trail just before the lake, but still passable. Next time I’ll bring clippers to clean it up a little too

What a trail. I was hoping for some exercise and didn't have high expectations about the views, but boy was I mistaken. In a clear day, you will be blown away. From various views of the islands and the bay (gorgeous!!) to magnificent views of Baker, this hike it really awesome. Right next to Bellingham, it offers the best we have. There are portions which are quite steep, and close to the lake it is quite muddy. The portion along the Ridge Trail has various spots for you to see Baker in all its glory. While this is ranked as an intermediate hike, the quite steep portions combined with the overall length of the hike make it probably more of a hard one.

We loved a small section of this trail from Cyrus Gate Outlook during the week! We were not in competition with mountain bikers but we did see three of them! The trail was fantastic because the terrain was so varied; slopes, ruts, needle - beds, fern grottos, and great peeking views to the east and west!

Perfect for a family outdoor outing and plenty of rocks to climb around on in the water. Plenty of barnacles to photograph and tiny crabs to watch! The campground down the road was a perfect spot to stay a week! (The bathrooms were well kept up with. Bring a portable charger if you must.)

Sweet place to hangout with friends along the bluff. And some pretty cool rock climbing. I also met a starfish named Marty there..

I guess I'll be the one to add this one to the rock climbing list there are a couple of short (30ft) climbs. Larrabee is a very popular park so if you don't like crowds like me wait until it gets cold and clear (good luck in WA) but exploring tide pools, rock climbing, and hiking it's a very diverse park.
