Woweee, what a view! Pilchuck, Three Fingers, Bigbear, and a bunch of other peaks. Before we could figure out what was what, clouds moved in and we were lucky to see our feet. From the center of Granite Falls, drive the Mountain Loop Highway 7 miles toward Verlot and go left on Forest Road 41. Pass two driveways on the right and stay on the paved road signed No. 41. This is the last road sign on this road. The Forest Service his given up replacing them for target practice.

You have to sweat a bit on the steeper portions of this trail (up 900+ feet in just 2 miles), but the end payoff is worth the effort. We hiked to the summit on a sunny day in March and we trucking through a foot of snow for the last half mile or so. From the top there is a magnificent 360* view stretching from Mt. Baker to Three Fingers, to Pilchuck, to Puget Sound and the Olympic Mountains. Great trail!

A mild winter made this hike great desipte being in February. The trails is an old forest road that is still used, but only by serious 4x4 rigs. The guide book says it is blocked, but that is no longer the case. There is a sign marking the start of the road, the only sign you will see to help you find your way up the forest roads to this trail. It is a wide and easy trail to hike and to follow. The elevation gain is minimal, the views at top are amazing. Views like that on a hike this easy is a rare combination. There was just a bit of patch snow and ice in the shade on the trail during the last 1/2 mile or so of the hike.

This is an amazing payoff for such a short hike. The drive is a bit long due to winding up the mountain on a one lane road, (FS 41 is a slight unmarked left off of mountain loop highway btw, I missed it the first time) and you have to be careful because there are a lot of blind spots and a few other cars on it from people that go shooting up there. There's really only one spot to park your car, which is in front of the blockade; and be sure to bring bug repellent. Very worth the trip.
