Recommend purchasing a Square One Map, Chuckanut Recreation Area at REI for this hike.  

This hike is on a nicely maintained trail thru large firs and cedars to Fragrance Lake.  We will start this hike from the Lost Lake Parking Lot Trailhead and head north on the Interurban trail until we meet the junction with the Fragrance Lake trail.  After arriving at Fragrance Lake, we will then proceed to Lost Lake via Fragrance Lake road and then along the scenic South Lost Lake Trail.  We will have a short 15 to 20 minute break for snacks or a light lunch at Lost Lake before returning back to the parking lot via the same route.

Plan on having a post hike meal at Tweets located in the charming town of Edison.
