From the south, take the Larrabee State Park/Chuckanut Drive exit off of I-5 (exit 231) and drive just past the 10 mile post on Chuckanut Drive (SR 11) and park on the paved, wide place on the west shoulder. From Bellingham, take exit 250 and drive south on SR 11 about 12 miles to the paved right shoulder. There probably will be a string of parked cars, and there isn't much room, so come early. The Pacific Northwest Trailhead is on the east side of the highway.

Very beautiful hike! It was just over 8 miles round trip and all up hill some steep hike, but the view at the top is worth it all! Would recommend getting there early for a parking spot and would also go on a clear day for the best view!

According to my iPhone and apple watch, this hike is 8.2 miles round-trip. Two other hiking sites give different information as well. I have seen both 6.25 and 6.5 miles posted. I wish someone of authority would make the hike and post accurate data. Great hike though! I just wasn't expecting my first hike out to be so long.
