  • It was good that we stayed one more day because the first day we could not see through the fog at all. Good overlook to see the top of the mountain.

  • Beautiful trail and overlook. You can see lots of flowers on the way. The trail is flat for the most part making it a great one if you’re looking for an easy hike.
  • Short trail with two overlooks offering breathtaking vistas of the Emmons Glacier. This trail was not marked and it took us a while to find it -- it's the first trail on the left of the parking lot with just a "no pets" sign.
