Revised Hike – Lily/Lizard Lake

On my St Patrick’s day hike scheduled for March 17 there is a Chuckanut marathon happening in the same area.  This might clog things up so if you please, consider the following:


Saturday March 17:  Hike to Lily and Lizard Lakes from the lower Blanchard Mtn trailhead.  Come and enjoy a stroll through the S Chuckanuts on Saint Patrick’s day.  We’ll meet at the Blanchard Mtn lower parking area at 9am (48°37’05”N; 122°22’47”W), and spend the morning and part of the afternoon exploring Lizard Lake, Lily Lake, and enjoy a bite to eat atop N Butte.  Total distance is approximately 8 miles with a 1600 ft elevation gain for the day.  Bring a lunch and water.  Questions contact Michael Davis at

March 17, 2018 (Saturday):  Hike the Rock Trail and surrounding hills.  Let’s spend the morning of St. Patrick’s Day hiking the Rock Trail and nearby trails in the Chuckanuts.  I’m shooting for an approximate 8 mile day with an approximate 1500-2000 ft elevation gain total.  Let’s meet at the trailhead at the top of Cleator Rd at 8:30am, and reasonably speedily hike for a few hours which should be enough to eat as much corned beef and cabbage and drink as much beer as our bodies can handle without guilt later that day.  Questions contact Michael at  Discover Pass required.
