Oyster Dome

Oyster Dome Professional Review and Guide

"Oyster Dome pokes its bald head above the beautiful lowland forests of the Chuckanut Range between Bellingham and the Skagit Valley. The view of the San Juan Islands and Samish Bay from Oyster Dome are incredible. The shimmering water is dotted with infinite islands. Some are just big enough for a seagull to take a nap on; others are as tall as Oyster Dome’s summit. The best part? You can hike this beautiful trail year-round.

Oyster Dome is a fantastic year-round hike in an interesting area of lowland mountains, lush forests, and tranquil lakes. With ample trails and viewpoints, the Chuckanut Mountains offer plenty of exploring. The hike to Oyster Dome is the most scenic hike in the area and a good sample of the coastal Chuckanut Mountains, which stretch from Bellingham to the Skagit Valley."

Awesome views, beautiful forest, and the trail is very well maintained. Lots of dogs here, which is super fun for me because I love them. It's definitely a moderate hike. There are some butt-kicking inclines and switchbacks but it isn't that tough. Spectacular sights out over Bellingham Bay and epic views of the San Juans. To add a little something extra, I recommend stopping on the way down at Lily and Laizard Lakes. Lovely!
