The Sauk Mountain Trail is an easy 2.1 mile hike. The trail begins and ends in high mountain meadows offering wildflowers and spectacular vistas the entire length. On a clear day, the Sauk Mountain Trail offers hikers a sweeping view of the Skagit River Valley towards North Cascades snow-clad peaks. The trail switchbacks for 1.5 miles up the mountain's east face before crossing the south flank of the mountain and winding along a ridgetop on the back side for 1/2 mile. Sauk Lake lies in a meadow basin below, with a 1.5 mile trail leading to it.
