Hey Brook Lookout

One of our fall hikes from last year - Hey Brook Lookout ... a short and sweet one.




The trail starts right off the highway. The minute you enter the cool mossy forest, you will forget the busy highway behind.




Round trip of 2.6 miles ..with a decent elevation gain but definitely a kid-friendly !






67 foot 'Hey Brook' lookout perched on 1700 foot ridge ... this ones served to monitor and alert forest fires in the area.


small details ... 



seven sets of these stairs leading you atop the lookout



My little girl happily climbing down and not one bit tired !




The serene view of the skykomish valley ( the picture does no justice to this !)
The telescopic view of Bridal Veil falls lured us for another hike but we decided to table that for the coming summer :)
