From the south, take the Larrabee State Park/Chuckanut Drive exit off of I-5 (exit 231) and drive just past the 10 mile post on Chuckanut Drive (SR 11) and park on the paved, wide place on the west shoulder. From Bellingham, take exit 250 and drive south on SR 11 about 12 miles to the paved right shoulder. There probably will be a string of parked cars, and there isn't much room, so come early. The Pacific Northwest Trailhead is on the east side of the highway.

popular trail and very busy on the weekends. Leaves you huffing and puffing, but worth the view once at the top

Straight up and straight down, it'll leave you huffing and puffing and then running all the way back down. Took me 2hrs up and 1:30hr down. i started at 12 and had lots of traffic on the trail and at the dome. Really great overall but prep your knees and bring your poles!
