Hiking Jakle's Lagoon

Jakle's Lagoon nature walk is a short loop trail with a descriptive guide found at the trail head and markers along the trail. You can make this a longer trip by turning off onto the trail to Mount Finlayson. The trail itself is easy to follow, with large nurse logs, ferns and firs. With easy access to Griffin Bay, you can lunch on the beach or continue on and explore the Lagoon and surrounding forest.

This national park site does not require a parking pass. There is a vistor center at American Camp on San Juan Island for more information as well as other hikes in the area.

WTA Pro Tip: Save a copy of our directions before you leave! App-based driving directions aren't always accurate and data connections may be unreliable as you drive to the trailhead.

Getting There

Take a ferry to San Juan Island, and upon disembarking, proceed down Spring Street - this takes you through town. After a half-mile, take a left onto Mullis Street (which soon becomes Cattle Point Road) and continue down it for seven miles. The trailhead for Mount Finlayson and Jakles Lagoon begin from the same place signed for Jakle’s Lagoon.
