Great Trail for a short day hike with excellent late summer the huckleberries are thick. This is a trail that has off shoots from the common shared Blue Lake Trail. The trail head parking lot has a quality outhouse facility. As with many upper elevation trails, late summer is a premium season for the hike due to the beautiful colors. Excellent view of Mt Baker in a few spots. The trail is very nice, not dangerous, but you will need to be in descent health or stop often for a breather many time :-) The drive to the parking lot is descent.

Great 360 views for not a long hike! Pretty shaded for the first mile and then pretty open meadows for the last. Took the gradual way up and the scramble down (much shorter and really not that difficult). Bugs at the top were pretty bad. Blue lake was a good detour at the end for the puppies to cool off.
