Anderson Butte

Anderson Butte Professional Review and Guide

"Not able to resist a play on the word butte, I’ll say this short trail to the site of a former lookout station is a real beaut. The cabin, built in the 1930s and removed in 1964, might be long gone, but the reason it was built there in the first place—the site’s open views to a stunning array of peaks and valleys— is certainly still there.

A little less than 1.5 miles from the trailhead, reach a saddle, which immediately pays off with stunning views to the east. There’s Mount Shuksan, the Pickets, Bacon Peak in the foreground, and lots more. Follow the ridgeline trail to the left for a few hundred yards—to the point where another step would result in a fall of several hundred feet—and the for-
mer lookout site. The 360-degree views include the previously mentioned peaks as well as Mount Baker, the Twin Sisters, and, far down in the valley below, Baker Lake."
