Northwest WA near Bellingham. WTA will spend a couple of weekends this winter improving several trails within Larrabee State Park. The work will focus on general maintenance including improving drainage in places where the tread is muddy, as well as possible trail realignment.
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. Joan Burton describes the Fragrance Lake Trail as a "beautiful 2-mile trail through low-elevation old-growth cedars and firs leads upward to a serene woodland lake. Fragrance Lake is crescent-shaped, has trout and skipping water bugs, and can be circled on a level shoreline trail."
