Oyster Dome

Oyster Dome Professional Review and Guide

"The Oyster Dome loop offers the runner an easily accessible workout on forested hills with incredible views any time of year. Samish Bay, the San Juan Islands, and the Olympic Peninsula are well presented within 1000 feet of climbing.

When you come to Lily Lake (D), turn left. The lake is a little added bonus on the Oyster Dome route (the Blanchard Hill route is an extension of the Lily Lake Trail). The trail signs and maps are a little unclear on what they want to call this segment of trail, but follow signs that point toward Oyster Dome. The run starts and ends on the Pacific Northwest Trail (labeled PNT on the signs). When completed, this trail will extend from Washington’s west coast well into Montana. It’s unclear how the trail will cross Puget Sound, but you can’t go much farther west on this part of the trail without falling into Samish Bay."
