Bluebill Trail #1331


This 1.2-mile (one-way) trail loops around Bluebill Lake, a seasonal lake where water levels vary. The lake can be dry in the summer and hikers may experience high water on the west side of the trail in winter. The trail surface changes from soft sand and packed material in places, traveling through western hemlock trees, huckleberry, and salal bushes.
