Heybrook Lookout

Area Status: Open
This area is Open
Heybrook Lookout.

Since 1925 lookouts have stood on this location. The current lookout was constructed in 1965 and staffed until the early 70s.

One of the first trails to be snow-free in this area, this is an ideal early-season hike. Begin climbing through a second-growth forest regenerated from clear cutting in the 1920s. The observation deck of the lookout is open to the public, and offers outstanding, close-up views of Mount Persis, Mount Index, Bridal Veil Falls and Philadelphia Mountain with other distant peaks to the east.

The lookout has been rebuilt by Everett Mountaineer volunteers. The original lookout was designed by Dan Evans, former governor of Washington State. For more information about volunteering or maintaining this facility contact the Everett Mountaineers.
