The Lookout Mountain trail is on the east side of Lookout Mountain above Lake Whatcom. It opened in 2013. Basic loop is 5.8 miles which includes a side trail to a lookout; elevation gain is 1000 feet. One may also hike additional miles on the log road system above the Preserve. The Lookout Mountain trailhead is located a mile or so south of the Stimpson Family Nature Reserve on the Lake Louise Road. Whatcom County hikers should drive directly to the trailhead. Other hikers meet at the Chuckanut Drive Park-n-Ride in Burlington at 8:30 am. These people will drive to the trailhead by way of the Alger-Caine Lake Road, the South Lake Whatcom Boulevard and the Lake Louise Road. Stimpson Family Nature Reserve maps will be given out at the Lookout Mountain trailhead. We will meet at the trail head about 9 am. You may leave when your group returns to the car. No dogs are allowed at the Stimpson Family Nature Preserve.
