North Mountain Lookout

North Mountain Lookout is for climbers who are not quite hardcore mountaineers.  The North Mountain Lookout offers a grandiose and sweeping view of the Northwest Wilderness. It’s a short hike to the top and offers views of Glacier Peak and Mount Baker.

Situated near the peak of North Mountain at an elevation of 3,809’ this lookout sits on two 5-acre parcels of land owned by the US Forest Service. Only thirteen miles from Darrington, the structure is one of the few of its kind that can be reached by car. This lookout started out as a tent camp with a fire-finder back in 1962 which was eventually replaced by the tower that remains today.
