Participant Information

Yellow Aster Butte is a gentle triple-summit peak immediately north of the North Fork Nooksack River drainage. 

Y.A.B. is a very rewarding and relatively easy summit with rewarding views of Mount BakerMount ShuksanThe PicketsMount LarabeeAmerican Border PeakCanadian Border Peak Tomyhoi Peak, and in the distance to the west, Church Mountain. The area is spectacular in the fall colors.

The trail from the parking area is well defined and very easy to follow all the way to the south summit. The true summit is a half a mile of an easy scramble to the Northwest.

The highest point is 1902 m, the elevation gain - 860 meters over 12 km.

The pace will be upper moderate. 


Passports needed for the trip.
