Miles: 1 roundtrip to Blue Lk
3 roundtrip to Dock Butte
Elevation: 400 feet on return from Blue Lk
1,350 feet gained to Dock Butte
At a quarter mile, through an old clear cut and then into a bigger forest, you come to the junction with Dock Butte Trail. This trail is a bit up and down for 1.5 miles to a viewpoint of Mount Baker and Shuksan. The Blue Lake Trail continues left for a half mile where you drop about 100 feet in elevation to its shoreline. Both trails are somewhat a rolling up and down. The Blue Lake trail feels basically flat except for the short climb down to the shoreline. It also has some campsites on the south side of the lake.
