Larrabee State Park - Rock Trail, Larrabee State Park - South Lost Lake Trail — Monday, Mar. 31, 2014

Puget Sound and Islands
Sandstone cliff
We parked at the Cyrus Gates Overlook parking lot. The 1.2 mile Rock Trail is a magnificent work of art as it travels beside massive Chuckanut sandstone cliffs on its way to meet the South Lost Lake Trail. I counted 174 stairs along the way. There were many muddy sections on the Lost Lake Trail especially as we neared the rock above the lake where we had lunch. We found an "Official Letterbox" near our lunch rock with a small book stamped "Joe Otter" inside. There were many blooming skunk cabbages in the boggy areas along the Lost Lake Trail. We recommend reading Taum Sauk's many trail reports which describe in words and pictures the building of this trail. Thank you to Ken Wilcox and Arlen Bogaards designers of the trail and to all the volunteers who spent many hours and hard work building the trail! :)! The official dedication is scheduled for 4-26.
