A moderate loop through lush forest, past several ecologically rich lagoons to ridgetop prairie and sweeping views of the Olympics to the south and the Cascades and Mount Baker to the east. If you’ve got an interest in ecology, this is the hike for you. This loop hike will give you an idea of how just slight differences in landscape can result in big changes in the kind of vegetation that grows there. Here, you’ll start out in lush forest and wander past quiet lagoons, then climb to a ridge to big views over windswept prairie.
