The Baker Preserve Trail is moderately steep, especially so in the beginning. Climb through forest and ferns to the overlook at 1.6 miles, where views of the San Juan Islands are only slightly blocked by a couple pesky trees.
Everything about our visit to the island was tiny (or pint-sized, if you will). We took a tiny ferry to a mini island with an itsy-bitsy trailhead parking lot, climbed a short trail and later explored some cute little beaches. There are three public beaches on the island, each offering a different perspective. Sunset Beach is located on the West side of the island, and there is public beach access across from the Beach Front Café near the ferry landing with gorgeous views of Mount Baker and Bellingham Bay. The third beach is accessed from the parking lot of Lummi Island Congregational Church with views of the San Juan Islands, particularly Orcas.
