Take a hike through an active working forest to the peaceful Loch Katrine. Hiking on logging roads may not seem appealing at first, but Loch Katrine is well worth the journey. Not only will you be treated to a few magnificent views along the way, you may also be able to treat yourself to a lovely dinner too! The lake is stocked with a variety of fish by the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife.

Be aware that this hike is on private property, and a day permit is required for entry.

Getting There

In North Bend, drive to the intersection of E North Bend Way and Ballarat Ave N. Turn north on Ballarat Ave N. In 0.6 miles, Ballarat Ave N curves to the right and becomes 108th St NE. Continue a half mile, then keep left on 428th Ave SE. Continue on 428th Ave SE, which will transition into N Fork Road SE, for 2.9 miles until reaching a fork four miles from the intersection of North Bend Way and Ballarat. At the fork, take N Fork Rd SE up and to the left.

Shortly after passing the fork, N Fork Rd SE transitions to gravel, and the name changes to NF-5700. Maps may indicate other name changes, but stay on the main road for approximately 11.2 miles until you reach a gated road with a large pullout.

A day permit is required for entry.
