Fragrance Lake

Chukanut Drive Area

Miles: 4.5 miles roundtrip including lake loop

Elevation: 975 feet gained

This has a bit more uphill than most of the other hikes on our 'Kid's Hikes' list. Though there is a lake at the end, giving the little legs some inspiration.

 This is a very well placed trail that weaves through beautiful forests to a loop around Fragrance Lake. After the first mile there is a short spur trail to a viewpoint overlooking the Puget Sound. Because of the more uphill, this trail should be considered for a bit older age kids (5-6).

  • Get there: Take I-5 to Burlington and exit onto Chukanut Drive. Follow Chukanut to Larabee State Park and find trailhead parking on the right side of the road.
