Fagin's Hike of the Week- Fragrance Lake

Issued: April 18, 2018
Nice spring hike that is snowfree. This hike is just south of  Bellingham. Good hike rain or shine. Also good hike now as many other trails are still covered with snow. I did not do this hike this year but recent trip reports state trail is open and "muddy" now.
