Just south of Bellingham this is a great hike, first to Oyster Dome and then to Lily Lake, then to Samish Overlook. This was just hiked on 12-25-2018 and no snow or any ice. Perhaps some icy spots on this Sunday 12-30-2018 with colder temperatures in the forecast. We started hike from Chuckanut Drive (SR 11).
