Overview
Red Mountain Trail #651 is a 1 mile one way hike with 744 feet elevation gain. Located 43 miles east of Everett Washington. August and July are the best months to enjoy this hike.


This seldom-used trail within Glacier Peak Wilderness leads through an old-growth forest with magnificent, large trees to the site of an old fire lookout build in the 1930s. Some of the firs in the deep forest on both sides of the trail measure six-feet thick at their base. The former lookout site has excellent views of the Pride Basin glaciers and land to the south. The trail ends at a rock outcropping a short distance beyond the former lookout site.
