Sauk Mountain Professional Review and Guide
"This trail makes a short but vigorous ascent to the summit of Sauk Mountain on the seaward edge of the North Cascades. Views are surprisingly inspiring from here, encompassing Mount Baker and Puget Sound as well as the glacier-carved peaks of the Cascades.A spur trail makes a long descent from the heights of Sauk Mountain to reach Sauk Lake, where there are several camping spots. Hikers who are in good physical shape can visit both the summit of Sauk Mountain and Sauk Lake in a hard half-day of hiking. The trail begins at the timberline, and zigzags steadily up a wide but steep couloir. Avalanches have swept away the trees here, clearing a space for a magnificent display of alpine wildflowers."
