on the trail

The Evergreen Mountain Lookout Trail (No. 1506) begins by climbing steeply though the still evident 1967 burn. It enters the Wild Sky Wilderness just after a half mile from the trailhead. In another half mile, the trail's grade eases a bit.  Reach a gap at one mile and 5,100 ft.  Here the forest turns to meadow and shortly find one final steep push to the lookout that was built in 1935 and restored n the 1990's. The trails continues  beyond the lookout for another 0.1 mile where there are many more good views.
