Great hike! Trail is well maintained. Up hill in and down hill out. The beauty of the lake is well worth the effort.

The lookout points are amazing. I took my 5 year old no problem.

It was a killer going up with my 5 year old. Loved the top and the trees and lookouts. Definitely will do again so much to explore around the area.

Bugs will get you on the way up if you don't keep a steady pace! I think they were eating my bug spray! Beautiful forest! I loved it! Up, up, up you go!

It's a very short and satisfying trail. Steep in the beginning. Then it levels out. Lots of viewpoints close together.

This is the first hike we have done in years and it was more difficult than we could have ever expected but it was worth it. Going back down hill was actually more difficult! it was so beautiful and the other hikers gave us motivation to push through. We highly recommend this trail! make sure you wear the appropriate footwear and bring trekking poles. Go on the morning before it is too hot. You will sweat!

This starts off as a wall, straight up, and doesn't give much respite until a mile or so in. Very beautiful, deep canopy forest. Lakes are cool. Lightly traveled, even on a Saturday.

Hadn't done this one before. Good hike for winter and spring before the snow up in the high country melts. Wasn't impressed that I could hear the freeway the entire time. But, glad to be outside and training again!

0.3 miles big incline, from there it's not to bad :)

Very pretty at the top though. Definitely recommend going to the viewpoint at the very top.

Awesome viewpoint above the lakes, plenty of camping spots around the lakes. Would recommend starting from the N Chuckanut trailhead.

Not a bad hike. Do go for views! You'll be a little salty. :)
