    Vidya RD reviewed Park Butte Lookout Trail

    3 months ago

    We completed this hike yesterday and absolutely loved it! Start at 1 pm and ended at 7 pm, inbetween stopped for views, pics and snacks.
    - Drive up to the parking lot was 8 miles and very bumpy and rough, I had a 10+ year old car and drove very slow. Watch out for the potholes!
    - Once you reach the parking lot, if you don't have the National Park Pass (which we didn't), at the start of the hike there is an envelope that you can drop $5 into and leave the receipt on the dashboard of your car.
    - The initial part of the hike starts out flat which gave our body a nice warm up before the climb began. I consider this hike an intermediate one compared to some of the others I have done but there were still some steep areas that gave me quite a work out (higher up during the hike).
    - I am happy I had my poles with me because the path is quite uneven with stones and rocks, the hiking poles kept me steady on my feet.
    - We never were bored because there was so much beauty around us! Also delicious wild berries to eat along the way :)
    - The top was slightly chilly and windy. Disappointed that Mt. Baker was not fully visible due to clouds but the view was still wonderful. No snow to worry about during the hike.
    - For sure we'll be back next time to set up camp and enjoy the stars and mountains!

    Absolutely my favourite hike thus far!
    Get to the parking lot early. We were there at 6:55 am and within 5-10 minutes the parking lot was filled up! (This was July long weekend).
    I found this hike to be challenging in several areas - during the initial upward climb, the snowy area climbing up to the summit and the snowy area descent. We wore yak traxs and had hiking poles. I felt quite nervous about the snow, if it were not for the yak traxs and poles I would have fallen on my butt. Initially I was sweating on the climb up but by the time we reached the top it was chilly and it started to snow.
    Views at Larch Valley, on the way to the summit and up at the summit were absolutely breath taking. If the hike is difficult for you, definitely don't give up. It is totally worth it!
    Met with some cute chipmunks at the top who were not at all shy and very hungry :)

    Beautiful and challenging hike completed May 2, 2018. Still lots of snow and ice. Please wear appropriate shoes such as hiking boots + crampons or yaktraxs. Going up was not too bad, coming down was incredibly slippery in some areas and expect to fall on your bum several times! We went up to the waterfall and came back down. Took us a total of 5 hours. Absolutely breathtaking scenery, lakes were still frozen though. Mountains were gorgeous! Will def. be back in the summer when the snow/ice has melted and the water is blue :)
