The Lummi Island Heritage Trust has conserved 1088 acres of Lummi Island’s natural areas. They are in charge of three preserves that we can access. Please consider donating to the Heritage Trust for helping keep Lummi Island beautiful. Donation boxes are near the entrance of each preserve.
The Baker Preserve is located off Seacrest Drive, 1/3 mile south of Sunrise Road on the right (west side of road). There is a trailhead sign-in located at the kiosk. Please log in and out and include brief comments. This hike will take you almost to the top of Lummi Mountain with great views to the west. It is well-marked with signs educating you about what you are seeing along the way.
This is a vigorous hike up a steep, winding trail. The hike is 1.64 miles to an overlook with views of the San Juan Islands. Sign-in at the trailhead kiosk is required to help the Trust manage this special property. Dogs are not allowed. Hike only on designated trails and “leave no trace.”

The trailhead is beyond the parking lot. A trail map is posted in the kiosk. The main loop trail and its side trails—Walden Walk, Baumgart Woods, and Betty’s shortcut–offer a lovely walk through the mature forest. Trails are well protected in light rains due to many sheltering trees. Dogs allowed on leash only—please dispose of your dog’s waste.
On North Nugent Road (the lower entrance), park in the mowed areas to the right and left of the driveway. Exploring the Curry Preserve is an easy trek, as you wander along footpaths through the fields and trees. This historic farmland has open fields, rich wetlands, mature forest, an old apple orchard, and a pond. Stop for a rest at the memorial benches and enjoy wonderful views of Mt. Baker. The Trust Community Garden and Orchard projects are located near the Nugent Road entrance. Dogs allowed on leash only—please dispose of your dog’s waste.
