“Experience amazing wildflower displays and a good smorgasboard of berries in the right season.”— Megan W
Upon reaching the ridge from Green Peak, you'll get a brief respite, but more ascending remains. Run steadily uphill paralleling Hoh Creek and then cross it. A patch of level ground and some camping spots are found after the creek crossing. Surmount another handful of switchbacks to the southern edge of Hoh Lake. When you're ready, climb up out of the Hoh Lake bowl, contouring around the eastern side. From here tarverse just below the spine and end at the junction with High Divide Trail at the southern base of Bogachiel Peak.
Check with a ranger beforehand about trail conditions - snowfield crossings, downed trees or trail washouts can occur here. Times for least amount of snow: mid-July through September. Note: bikes are not allowed on this trail.
