Mount Higgins Trail

OutAndBack • 9 mi • 3400 ft

Rising above the pastoral farmlands of the North Fork Stillaguamish River valley between Arlington and Darrington is impressive Mount Higgins, with its folded strata of metamorphosed sandstone and shale. It’s as if Atlas himself crunched this landscape into a giant accordion. Hum a Cajun tune or two and two-step up the steep trail to the vertigo-inducing former lookout site, where you can peer straight down to the Stilly or out across to rows of jagged and glacier-clad peaks. Chances are you’ll have this airy outpost all to yourself.
