From Everett, E on US 2 to mile marker 37. The trailhead is on the North side of US 2 near mile marker 37, opposite a big national forest entrance sign

Pretty good pitch the whole way but worth it.

Nice hike with a beautiful view at the top. Even though this trail is rated easy, it was a steady incline throughout. At the very top, there is a wooden lookout that has about 6 flights of stairs where you can get great a great view

Great hike but for a beginning hiker I would say far from easy. I was not expecting the incline the entire way up.

Hiked 6/18 after completing a 4 mile trek at Wallace Falls (about ~15 drive west). The trail was in good condition, albeit a little muddy after the previous day's rain. As other hikers have mentioned, this trail is nothing but up, up, up - right from the get-go. At a brisk pace, it took me about 30 minutes to get to the top of the trail and just another minute or so to climb the firetower. It was a very cloudy/overcast day and the view therefore wasn't as picture-perfect as I would have hoped - but I still found the view to be great. Even as cloudy as it was, I could still see Bridal Veil Falls and snow-capped mountains nearby.

I'd recommend pairing this hike with another in the area (especially if you're traveling from far away), as it's very short and simple. If it's a cloudy day, know that the view may be hit-or-miss.

Up hill the entire way to the tower. Dog friendly if they can climb steps and stairs. Beautiful view on a sunny day! Hiked on 5/21/17 2:20pm-3:50pm
