About this spot
Lookout Mountain Lookout stands on a tower in a wildflower covered meadow near the summit of Lookout Mountain and commands a sweeping view over a broad swath of the North Cascades. The distance to the lookout and back again is 8.5 miles with a breathtaking 4500-foot elevation gain. This area is not as crowded as the easier to reach Hidden Lake Peaks or Cascade Pass. (Monogram Lake, the alternative destination, offers a very photogenic view up the Cascade River valley before the trail ends in the forested lake basin).
