The Mt. Pilchuck Lookout is not a good place for the clumsy nor people afraid of heights. You climb over large boulders and then a ladder to reach its platform.
There were brief interludes of the clouds momentarily parting to catch a glimpse of Mt. Rainier. For those less patient, they had already headed back down, shame on them.
I was not in love with the hike up because there was a lot of climbing over things and it felt like walking up a dried river bed instead of on a trail. Once we were up there I quickly changed my mind and decided I would come back here in a heartbeat to see what Mother Nature had in store for us. On a clear day you can see the San Juan Islands, Olympics, Mt. Rainier and just about anything else you would want.
