    Mary Anderson completed Mount Dickerman Trail

    Mary Anderson reviewed Colchuck Lake Trail

    almost 2 years ago

    Wow! What an amazing hike, despite the mosquito's, and biting flies. Bring a lot of water and food you will need it. The gradual incline makes it nice, and not grueling. There are quite a number of view points for photo opps. It is nice trail, but starts to get rockier and more roots after the junction. There is only one very sketchy bridge crossing, just be careful as you're stepping down off the foot bridge. The last mile is a lot of stepping up and over rocks and can be strenuous to difficult, I found it to be moderate to strenuous but very doable. The lake is well worth the sweat in the end. Dogs are not allowed on this trail. However we saw 1 small dog. On our way back down there were at least 20 backpackers that passed us, not to mention the 5 or 6 that had already set up camp while we were there. I gave it 5 stars because of the amazing lake.

    This a beautiful hike through a lush green forest along the Nooksack River. The trail is very beautifully maintained. A perfect hike for those new to hiking, very kid, and dog friendly. Very little elevation, but just enough to give you a good cardio work out with all of the ups and downs. A few spots are extremely muddy, but still easy to get through. Great views of the river along the way. We didn't hike the last mile since it brought you back out onto the main hwy. Our total r/t was 3.7 miles. Then we ventured down to Boyd Creek trail, only 1/4 mile r/t off of Glacier Creek Rd.

    The only reason I gave this trail 3 stars is because it's not marked very well, even with a map we had a hard time telling which way to go, but we made it to the Falls, which is barely trickling. Otherwise it is beautiful through here. We started at the N. Chuckanut Trail Head, started on Interurban trail, to Helmlock then Chuckanut Falls. In certain areas there are posts telling you which way to go. There are trails branching off the one your on that are not on the map. The provided link has maps. Click on to the link, then Chuckanut Mountain, below the photo is you scroll down it will tell you distance from the different trail heads, otherwise click on to the link below the photo, then click on to the blue link, then go to maps and publications, then maps.

    This is such a great hike! My 2nd time out there. Go on a nice day and get there early to have it all to yourself. The lake doesn't disappoint, so beautiful. Take Upper Elliot on your way up, and Lower Elliot on your way back. Upper Elliot is much nicer, where Lower Elliot is rocky, very narrow in many spots due to overgrowth, and extremely muddy in many places. It's a long hike but having the Alltrails app on your phone allows you to see where you're at on the trail. The waterfalls close to the top are amazing, and require you to go off trail 100' or so, but worth it for the photo ops.

    Mary Anderson reviewed Lake 22 (Twenty-two) Trail

    about 2 years ago

    I love this hike! Monday was my 2nd time out there. Right at the beginning is a HUGE mud puddle. There are muddy spots along the way, there not bad. There are 5-6 creeks running through the trail and over the rocks. Trekking poles were nice to have to avoid slipping, and falling. About a 1/2 mile in it gets more rocky, be careful and watch your footing as it's easy to trip and fall. For me this hike was easy - moderate, if your not use to elevation I would rate moderate - strenuous. Better to go during the week to avoid the crowds of people, if you go on the weekend get there early before 9 if you can, parking fills up fast. This is a very popular hike, and a good trail to do a solo hike on because of its popularity.

    Beautiful trail all the way to the top. This trail doesn't lack at all on the wildflowers. My friend and I were out there on May 6th, we saw Marmots, deer, salamandars, chipmunks, butterflies, and a woodpecker. The trail is beautifully maintained, but is very narrow, if your afraid of heights this might not be the trail for you. There isn't much shelter from the sun so you may want to pack sunscreen, and sunglasses, and bring extra water. I thought it was an easy trail, if your not use to a lot of elevation or don't like elevation, this could be moderate to strenuous for you.

    Unable to edit my review below. I just wanted to add the lake is snow free, and if your planning to go to Bridal Veil and Lake Serene the same day, go to Bridal Veil first while you still have the energy, after hiking Lake Serene you probably won't want to go to Bridal Veil.

    After my friends and I stopped by Bridal Veil Falls we ventured on to Lake Serene. If your new to hiking I do not recommend this trail to you, once you get pass the bridge and the cascading water, its all rocks and stairs after that, even people who appeared to be in great shape were having to stop and catch their breath. I would have rather had steps the entire way, having to step up and over the rock, and not just small ones either really tires your legs out. That's why I gave it 3 stars, it went from moderate to strenuous, but for some it could be strenuous to difficult. There are over 20 switchbacks. Time to get to the lake varies by person, it took us over 4 hours to get up and over 4 to get back down. Overall it is an excellent workout, and definitely worth the challenge if you're up to it. Take extra water, you're going to need it.

    My friends and I went out here this past Saturday. A beautiful easy path to the junction, then it goes to moderate, definitely a great hike if you don't mind all of those stairs. The mist from the falls cooled us off. We got to the trailhead at 7 and the lot was already starting to fill up.

    Great hike!! Nicely maintained trail. About 2.5 miles in Crampons were a must. Extremely icy.

    Beautiful, as the sun was shining through the forest. The mossy trees are amazing.
    It looks as though a new trail is being added on. WTA says this trail is 5.0 miles round trip, 2.5 miles to the river though there wasn't river access.
