“A pleasant trail up to Samish Overlook.”
— Eric Ashley
The Blanchard Hill Area is a multi-use trail network near the Chuckanut Recreation Area. Expect traffic in both directions and yield to hikers and equestrian riders. Dogs must be on-leash unless otherwise designated. The area is maintained by WA DNR and a Discover Pass is required for every vehicle that enters the boundary.
This fairly mellow trail starts at the three-way intersection with Max's Shortcut and Lily Max Connector
. From there it travels up to the Samish Overlook through groves of dark trees. The grade is steady and there is a steeper section, but overall it's less challenging than other nearby trails.
