“A route through beautiful old growth forest to spectacular views at Whatcom Pass.”— Sarah Baker
At 2 miles, the trail passes Graybeal Camp and begins to climb more steeply up to Whatcom Pass. This section can be steep and rocky with many switchbacks. The views continue to improve up to Whatcom Pass which has spectacular views of Mount Challenger, Whatcom Peak, and many other glaciated mountains.
