Blanchard Hill rises from the Skagit and Samish Valleys on the southern edge of the Chuckanut Mountain ridge. The trails are well marked and maintained. With a high elevation of 2100 feet, this is a year-round trail. The terrain is hilly but not too steep or technical, making it a good trail for beginners and a fast trail for the more advanced trail runner. There are good views from the trail, second-growth forest to enjoy, and the lakes make a nice destination point. Combine this with easy access from Interstate 5 and ample parking, and it makes for a lovely half-day excursion from Seattle.
