After 3 miles of hard climbing, the trail enters green meadows and continues up to the old lookout site on a rocky peak, elevation 6000 feet. Marmots are often seen and heard whistling in the meadows. Visitors who come soon after the snow melts, usually early July, can see the meadows carpeted with Glacier Lilies. The summit affords views of Mt. Baker and Canadian Border Peaks. Backpackers should use existing campsites and try to limit impact on fragile vegetation.
Directions: From Glacier, Travel east on Mt. Baker Hwy. 542 for 5.2 miles. Turn left on Forest Service Road #3040. Follow this road for approximately 2.5 miles to the end. The trailhead and parking area are located at the end of the road.
Elevation: 2,400 feet
