Today we took a motorcycle ride to the two that are nearer our house, and that are less well-known. The first is Lake Roesiger, site of a homestead turned into a park. It is the 4th largest of the lakes in the County. The park is well maintained and has a very nice swimming area, sandy beach, restrooms, and hiking trail.
|Lots of interesting historical information, old growth fir trees, and even a spreading chestnut tree for shady picnics.|
On to Flowing Lake, the smallest of the power boat lakes in Snohomish County. It has a very nice park area, complete with a big play toy for small children, a picnic shelter, rest rooms, picnic tables in both the shade and the sun, and a good swimming area. There is a daily charge of $5 per car. Best access now is off Dubuque Road, as 3 Lakes Road is closed part way for construction.
