We didn't get to the park until after 4 PM. Unfortunately the sunset at about 4:35 PM. The trail that we quickly hiked was heavily treed with peek a boo views of the water. Unfortunately we had to cut our visit short when the sun...More

this is an interesting spot for inter tidal pools depending on the tide when you're there. Great views, great picture taking spots.

The steady climb on the Fragrance Lake trail is worthwhile. The tranquil lake and wooded surroundings made us forget we live in an urban area. We like that the trailhead was close to the Larabee State Park parking area. We encountered a few others on...More
