Mileage: 11+ miles
Elevation Gain/Highest: 1600/1800ft
Directions: Head north on I-5 to exit 231 just past Mount Vernon, through the roundabouts to head north on SR 11/Chuckanut Dr. At approximately 15 miles, just past the entrance for Larrabee State Park, look for Fragrance Lake TH parking pullout on the right. You will see a larger parking lot BEFORE the state park that says Lost Lake, that takes you in a different route. There is room for about 8 cars at the Fragrance Lake TH, you can also park at the state park. From Bellingham, head south on SR 11 for 7 miles. You will need a Discovery Pass.
If you want to skip the scenic section of SR 11 that goes through the farmland, it is possible to go further north on I-5 to the Cook Rd or Bow Hill exits and cut over to meet SR 11 closer to where the road winds between the mountain and the bay.
