“An incredibly scenic ridge top route that connects Paradise and Reflection Lakes areas.”— Megan W
Arrive at the truly spectacular viewpoint of Faraway Rock. Here you can revel in incredible views of Tatoosh Range, the length of Stevens Valley and pretty Louise Lake basin directly below. This pretty cliff and nearby tarn are popular places to snack and rest. To finish this trail, continue west from Faraway Rock, crossing a feeder stream for Louise Lake. The descent steepens here until the trail ends at an intersection with the Wonderland Trail near Reflection Lakes.
