In the morning, from our camp site, we walked to the Fragrance Lake trailhead. We ascended to an elevation of 640 feet, taking the Viewpoint spur for a look at smoke infused Samish Bay. In the afternoon, we drove to a trailhead off gravel washboard Cleator Road and hiked 1.7 miles on the Chuckanut Bay 2 Dollar Trail to Fragrance Lake which sits at an elevation of 1,040 feet. Both hikes passed through thick woods. We noted some unusual stumps and root structures, including some roots surrounding a rock. We also found blackberries, huckleberries, and salal. Larribee State Park offers steep, but great hiking.
