Lookout Mountain/ Monogram Lake Trail

Lookout Mountain/ Monogram Lake Trail Professional Review and Guide

"Enjoy a spectacular view of jagged and icy peaks from a lookout on a mile-high ridge above the confluence of the Skagit and Cascade rivers. Or venture to a large alpine lake tucked in an open cirque beneath glacial Little Devil Peak on the western edge of the North Cascades National Park.

Whichever destination you choose, prepare for some serious climbing. It’s an arduous ascent to these awesome destinations, but worth every ounce of sweat expended."

Starts steep and stays that way! Very difficult but the payoff is great. Views abound once above treeline. Still snow at 4500'+ with several steep sections and route-finding necessary. Be prepared with poles &/or ice axe. Ranger station loans bear bins which is recommended: no sightings but lots of skat in meadows. Huckleberries everywhere but not ripe yet. Lake was still 70% covered in ice so no swimming either.
