Fragrance Lake Trail Professional Review and Guide
"This beautiful 2-mile trail through low-elevation old-growth cedars and firs leads upward to a serene woodland lake. The trail, recommended for older children, has a view of boats in Wildcat Cove. Downed nurse logs supporting young hemlocks are common, but children will laugh at the sight of a nurse rock at about 1 mile, with tree roots wrapping the oblong rock like cord around a package. Fragrance Lake is crescent-shaped, has trout and skipping water bugs, and can be circled on a level shoreline trail. Ask your children how they think this lake got its name."
--Joan Burton, Best Hikes with Kids: Western Washington & the Cascades (The Mountaineers Books).
