Evergreen Lookout

Climb steeply the first two-thirds of a mile through the old Evergreen Mountain Burn of 1967. Enter a dense forest where the grade eases a bit before reaching a small saddle below the lookout and ascends again to reach the building. The trail is noted for wildflowers, scenery and sighting wildlife. On a clear day see Glacier Peak, Mt. Rainier and a 360-degree vista of surrounding peaks. For more information about volunteering or maintaining the lookout contact the Skykomish Ranger Station.
