September 20, 2014. Mount Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest, Whatcom County, Washington.

Trailhead is on Twin Lakes Road about 4 miles off of Mount Baker Highway.

Nice hike on a very popular trail, leading to a great viewpoint or further on to an area with lots of tarns and campsites or up to Tomyhoi Peak.

It’s a bit over 3 miles and about 2500 feet of elevation gain one-way to the viewpoint on the butte.

One of the first trails off of Mount Baker Highway. A steep climb through lush forest leads to a long meadow and then to a former fire lookout site at 6100 feet elevation.

Roundtrip is about 8.5 miles and the elevation gain is 3750 feet.
