Took me 4 hours total to hike up past Benton Lake to Scott Mt former lookout site and back. Incredible views of the entire area. The entire Cascade range out in front of you is priceless! worth the steep switchbacks near the top. bring extra water.. no water access after Tenas Lake.

Good morning hike 20 minutes In and 20 minutes out. More traffic than usual, but not crowded at all. Great test hike.

Easy to Moderate to Benson Lake. Be sure to see the view from the West side ridge of Benson Lake. Strenuous to Tenas lakes and Mt. Scott
