I have not personally done this hike before, but it looks awesome for a beginner hike, complete with views of Samish Bay, waterfalls and lakes.

We are NOT going all the way up the Mountain, but along the ridge only.  We will see what levels of snow there might be.  I will be headed up there on May 11th to check it out and let you know more after that.
