Trail begins at the site of the old Barlow Pass Guard Station and at .3 mile encounters a junction. The left branch leads to the Old Government Trail #733. The main trail skirts the foot of a large outcrop of volcanic rock. A series of gentle switchbacks brings the hiker to the crest of the ridge, which burned in the Buck Creek fire early in the century. At 1.1 mile the summit is reached at the site of the Barlow Point Lookout, which has excellent views of the South Fork Sauk and South Fork Stillaguamish valleys.
