From Everett, east on US 2 to mile marker 35. Turn right after the marker on Mount Index Road (FSR 6020) and travel 0.3 miles. Turn right at the fork onto FSR 6020-109 and go 0.1 miles to the trailhead on the left.

Stunning. Absolutely worth the climb.

One of the most stunning places I've been! Went on a sunny day. The forest was cool on the way up and then BAM there's Lake Serene nested in all these LOTR/Mordor-like mountains. Bridal Veil Falls on the way up is a MUST. Prepare for a ridiculous amount of stairs but with more than worthy pay-off
