- Park Butte Lookout, built in 1932, offers great close up views of Mt. Baker and the Twin Sisters Range. The trail leading up to the lookout is a moderate 3.5 miles. The trail usually becomes snow-free by mid-July. The creek crossings can be difficult in the afternoon so please use caution. Lookout maintenance is performed by volunteers from the Skagit Alpine Club.
Formally used as fire lookouts, they have been adopted by local organizations using volunteer time and materials to maintain the facilities. The lookouts are open to the public for day or overnight use on a first-come first-served basis. The lookouts are generally inaccessible until mid to late summer due to snow. If you plan to spend the night in a lookout be aware that they may be occupied when you arrive.
