9:00 AM at Trail Head

Another great hike in the North Cascades. For more details on the hike see: For photos from last years hike see (due to low clouds I was not able to take any photos from the fire lookout): This hikes goes up to a fire lookout. And, where there is a fire lookout there is a view. The last part of the trail is up a “bounder field”. Everyone on this hike needs to be comfortable going through a boulder fields. The trail head is a 3 hr drive from Seattle and the last couple of miles is on a dirt road.
