“Earn some of the best panoramic views Rainier has to offer on this difficult run.”— Tom Robson
This trail sees little use and its access can be hindered by flooding from the Nisqually River.
For the first two miles, the trail ascends steeply through dense forest to a small stream, then continues another mile to a meadow. Beyond the meadow, the trail is much steeper and rocky as it climbs the final 0.5 mile to the 5700 ft. saddle where the trail ends. Use extreme caution when you reach the saddle. This area is exposed and a fall could be deadly.
