Success for us means ensuring everyone feels welcomed, supported, and has a fun day. Take moments to appreciate the scenery, feel welcome to advocate for yourself as needed, and stay hydrated. Looking forward to a beautiful and fantastic hike!

The ascent to the beautiful ridge is both a satisfying challenge and within reach if you've been building up to 1500' this summer. The trails along the ridge wind over lovely granite in places, cutting through lush forests and opening up to an expansive viewpoint overlooking Chuckanut Bay, our lunch spot. Along the way, there are peek-a-view glimpses of Mount Baker through the trees.

There are reviews of a slightly longer version of our hike with +500 photos at the link below. https://www.alltrails.com/trail/us/washington/chuckanut-ridge-trail
