China Poot Lake Professional Review and Guide
"The trail passes through forest, two small lakes with gorgeous
views of Poot Peak and China Poot Lake. The dock at the head of Halibut Cove Lagoon may be busy with boaters and salmon anglers in midsummer, but decent solitude is just up the trail. Since the tides control when you can get in and out, you might as well relax and stay awhile, at least over-
night—and two or three nights is even better."

bear scat everywhere. It was like step and slide. I did this hike twice. The second time with just my son and I. We encountered a black bear up close and in person. Did not seem to be to interested in us maybe 50 feet away. Hike was not bad very accessible and easy trail. Goat rope spur which starts at the same point was overgrown. My daughters swam in china poot lake. nice day nice hike. If you are staying in one of the cabins wake up early and look for bears along the waters edge.
