Yellow Aster Butte Trail

Yellow Aster Butte Trail Professional Review and Guide

"The focus of this book is wildflowers, but this hike is also spectacular in late summer or early fall when autumn colors appear and berries ripen. On a clear day the sky is deep blue, Mount Baker is at its best, and the meadows of Yellow Aster Butte are golden and dreamy.

As for the flowers, there really aren’t any yellow asters—the “yellow asters” are daisies. In addition to lots of daisies look for purple asters, Indian paintbrush, fireweed, bistort, penstemon, mertensia, rosy spirea, lupine, and anemone. Go midweek if possible to avoid human bottlenecks on this popular trail."
