10-12" of snow. had to park along the road. look forward to coming back.

[Hiked August 19th, 2019] This hike is in my top 5 favorites I've ever completed. We started the hike pretty late in the day, probably around 4:30pm and finished just as the sun set. Having to hike back to the car in the dark wasn't so bad, although the temperature dropped significantly more than we expected. The first portion of the trail, probably about the first 0.75 miles, was nice with a slight incline. We passed over a large stream. There was a foot bridge that only allowed one person to cross at a time. After that, the climb gets intensely steep with several long switchbacks. It probably stays that way until a little over a mile in to the hike. Once you've finished those switchbacks, you are able to see the first bits of Mt. Baker. the views are absolutely stunning all the way through. There were definitely a lot of other people on the trail but it felt pretty dispersed and wild. The last meadows before the ascent to the lookout were jaw dropping. The hard climb to the lookout was very steep and a bit tricky at the end. Overall, a moderate-hard hike with an insanely great payoff. We didn't get a chance to stay overnight at the lookout but there were folks occupying it with a few tents sprinkled nearby. 10/10, would do again.

Easy and fun for the beginning of the season. I hiked this just over a year ago, sad to hear it isn't accessible at the moment because the bridge has been removed.

Hiked this loop and then some, last summer. It was absolutely breathtaking. Very challenging. Being an avid hiker from the Midwest did very little to prepare me for the grueling and challenging terrain, but I powered through and it was definitely worth it.

Hiked this trail mid-July. The road to the trailhead had a massive rut in it and I thought my Chevy Cruze was going to get stuck (we made it, with a lot of crunching sounds). It was awesome, the beginning is tough but worth it!! It’s not often you see a tired Cattle dog, but mine was pooped by the time we got back to the car. The fog rolled in when we got to the top of the switchbacks and it was super eerie, but was clear around the top. My pup enjoyed playing in the remnants of the snow. The bugs were insane at the top. We saw some wildlife too! We didn’t do the whole trail because of a time crunch but I for sure will be going again, hopefully this year.

The trail up to the bridge was beautiful! Easy trail, very well maintained. Fair warning, the road was closed so it's an extra two mile walk (but still very pretty), and the bridge was out and we were unfortunately able to get across the water. The water would have been close to our knees if we would have crossed.

A very fun winter hike that gives great views of snow covered mountains without a snow covered trail.

Didn’t make it far, sign said trail was closed for avalanche control. Decided to follow the rules and turn back. Still a nice little stroll

The trail is closed for the season but we did it anyway. This was a great, short, easy trail. The lakes are beautiful, mostly iced over. There is snow the entire way up the path but the trail itself is still clear. There are some blown down trees over the path but simple to get around. The road up is an adventure with a lot of car size potholes, definitely better to have a higher clearance car getting up there.
