Bellingham, Washington Map

Water Falls are flowing beautifully and easy to get to, upper waterfall has an incline but I seen people of all ages on their way to view as it’s a short distance. Variety of trails to choose from and trails are well marked. Trail conditions were good.

*beautiful deep woods.
*went to south lost lake for a couple more miles.
*cedar and pine lakes trail gets a lot of traffic, but once off on hemlock trail to rapture ridge, it seemed less traveled.
*dogs loved it too- lots of water.

Pretty, easy, good workout if you keep the pace up. Good place to walk and chat or take the pup. A bit muddy in a few spots this time of year (April).

Amazing hike, it was mild but the ecosystem was just amazing. highly recommend this hike for all ages.

A beautiful hike! Glad I had a map as the trail is not well marked in some places.

*pretty drive

*nice wide high( not muddy)trail.
*easy grade, near Bellingham.
*water for the dogs.
*popular trail, even in winter.

Nice pretty hike. The view of the lake is nice but, not a full shot of the lake. We’ll be back to do it again.

Great hike for the more ambitious adventurers. Very steep so you’ll get a workout! Lots of moss covering huge western red cedars, hemlocks and Douglas fir.

some of the trails are closed for maintenance unfortunately, but still gorgeous to trail run!

quiet, easy trail. great for families with young kids.

Easy family/pet friendly. The lake is beautiful and quiet. I wouldn't swim or walk in it... It was a very peaceful walk.

Beautiful way to get some exercise with a moderate switch back incline. If you have a dog who doesn’t love other dogs, be prepared for lots of folks who think they are an exception to the leash rule. My dog is just fine when meeting other leashed dogs, but not so much with the free roamers. I found myself apologizing for my dog getting snarly with aggressive butt sniffers:) Other than that, even though the parking lots were packed, the trail wasn’t crowded.

Awesome trails, the picture perfect view of Mt Baker from The Cedar Lake lookout is well worth the hike! Once you get past the initial ascend (which is a pretty tough hike), the trails level off and there’s multiple routes you can go depending on how ambitious you’re feeling. Highly recommended!

Great view at the top! Very uphill though, so be prepared for that.

Very flat and beautiful trial along the lake! Great for dogs and kiddos.

I would recommend not completing the 'full loop' after the point where Lost Lake exits into a waterfall on the east bank. After that point, the trail becomes viewless, obstructed, and very difficult. However, the viewpoint at the south end of this loop is magnificent, and I highly recommend taking the South Lost Lake trail to get there.

The first mile or so (can't remember) is a bit steap, but the path is not technical at all. Once you get to the top, its rolling walkways and flat areas abound. The view is OK, apparently better than Oyster Dome for busyness. Something about the area makes the forest cozy. Weather was fantastic, path was quite dry.

pretty easy hike, great waterfalls

wonderful trail, heads to a beautiful beach

Whew. The initial incline on this trail is no joke. Be warmed up and ready to go when you get there! Beautiful views once you get to the top. He it with my pup and he loved swimming in the lake!

fun, pretty busy trail. ran it with my pup this week and he loved it!

This is a nice easy hike with a couple great waterfall spots. You can really hike all over this area and there’s a number of well maintained trails to choose from. Will be back again to explore more but all in all a nice hike.
