Hike to a historic ?re lookout teetering on the edge of a craggy knoll for an Imax-like showing of Washington’s third-highest summit. Aside from unsurpassed views of snow-shrouded Mount Baker, marvel at the outstanding surrounding high country dotted with tarns and begging to be explored. Come in summer and play in ?elds of snow. Come in autumn and roam through crimson ?elds. But try to come during the week, for crowds are legion at Park Butte, located in the 8000-acre Mount Baker National Recreation Area (NRA).

Park Butte Trail #603 - The trail bridge over Rocky Creek was destroyed. Additionally, Rocky Creek moved about 100 yards to the west. A new bridge will be needed to cross this creek.
