February 9, 2022 CAI-PNW Hike – Lost Lake

Join Clarence Elstad for Lost Lake hike located near Larrabee State Park south of Bellingham. Lost Lake is tucked away atop Chuckanut Mountain. The trail to the lake leads through a recovering forest of big leaf maple, alder, Douglas fir, and western hemlock, meandering 4.5 miles to a riparian hideout, providing waterfalls, old growth, fall color, and year-round hiking to those who make the journey.

If interested, we can stop after the hike to visit an oyster farm and buy mussels or oysters.

Mileage: 9 miles roundtrip

Elevation gain: 1950 feet (moderate level hike)

Bring: snacks, lunch, water, rain gear

RSVP to Clarence by noon on February 7, 2022
