Winchester Lookout

Enjoy views of the Northern Picket Range and Canadian Peaks from Winchester Mountain Lookout.
It was built in 1935 and is maintained by Mt. Baker Hiking Club volunteers.

Steep snowfields on the Winchester Mountain Trail usually require an ice axe well into July. Cross these steep snow slopes with caution.

The Twin Lakes Road may not be drivable to the Winchester Mountain Trailhead. In this case, parking is at the Tomyhoi Lake Trailhead, adding 2 miles to the hike.

NOTE: Starting November 2017, the lookout will be locked and not open to public use from November through May. Winter visitors will not be able to access the inside of the lookout or use it as a shelter. The lookout will reopen for visitation in June, or when conditions allow.
