Excelsior! Always upward! And certainly that would be true if you tackled this former lookout site on the High Divide from the North Fork Nooksack Valley. That access would cost you nearly 4000 vertical feet of sweat and toil. But by hiking to this expansive-view-granting promontory via the Damfino Lakes Trail, all of that alpine glory can be yours for a mere song—and only 1500 feet of elevation gain.
