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 steep &and under cover of trees. Didn't make it to the top my 1st time, but I'll be going back to conquer!

Steep incline from bottom to top. Really makes you work. Path is in good condition. The limited creeks do not have any water but signs of wetness. At the top the views would be tubular; but today cause of the wild fires in BC only could see the oyster beds. Very good hike

Steep but beautiful hike with what I imagine would be a great view (don't go on cloudy day if you want to see the full view).

A beautiful, well-travelled trail with several nice views and streams along the way.

A bit steep in areas but worth the effort to enjoy a snack with supreme bay views. Very busy on the weekends in the summer (8am start last round).
