Beautiful! It was cloudy in some spots but even with the cloud the views were breathtaking!

Very nice views. Lake is beautiful. The trail itself, while not physically difficult has many large rocks and tree trunks you need to jump over. Will be somewhat difficult with smaller children.

The drive up Illabot is beautiful, great views of the valley and the Skagit River. Their are a few creeks on the way and plenty of gorgeous scenery. The trail itself is scheduled to be closed soon, no longer maintained it has all but became another part of the Skagit's history.
