Three Fingers Lookout

Area Status: Open
Three Fingers Lookout

This hike is very difficult and strenuous, and the last half mile of the trail requires mountain climbing equipment and expertise. You must traverse a short, steep section of the Three Fingers Glacier, make a rocky scramble and ascend steep ladders to the lookout on the south peak of Three Fingers Mountain. As there is considerable exposure, those using the cabin and ladder must determine if the climb to the lookout is safe.

The lookout was built in 1932-33. For more information about volunteering or maintaining this facility contact the Everett Mountaineers
