Ascent Trip Report

Tyee Lookout (pronounced Ty-ee) was recently retired.

I drove most of the way and then hiked just the last 2.5 miles of road. I took a short cut on the way down and just went through the meadow back down to the road. The lookout was closed but one of the "shutters" could be opened enough to stick my camera in and get a photo of the inside even if I couldn't see it. From the Lookout, looking south and a little east you could see a notch that is where SugarLoaf Mountain Lookout is located. As you can see from my gps track, I took a short-cut on the way back down. After driving back down I drove up to Steliko Point Lookout.

1) Starting from Highway 97A, turn west onto on Entiat River Road (County Road 19) towards Glacier Peak Wilderness as well as the community of Ardenvoir.
2) After 9.8 miles, at the community of Ardenvoir, turn left onto Mad River Road (County Road 119A). This might be a good place to set your odometer.
3) After 2.1 miles, the road name changes to Forest Road 5700.
NOTE: This road name changes occurs where Forest Road 5800 (French Corral Road) intersect the main road from the south.
4) After 14.2 miles from Ardenvoir, turn right onto Forest Road 5713 (approximately 4400' elevation). Note, the pavement end on 5700 shortly after the turn-off.
5) After 4.2 miles (18.4 miles from Ardenvoir), arrive at the summit of Tyee Mountain.
