“A nice journey through dense forest to areas teeming with wildlife and wildflowers along Wonderland.”— Tom Robson
Due to the open nature of this area, the views of Mount Rainier and surrounding peaks are amazing.
This route begins at Longmire along the the Wonderland Trail. An alternate route along Kautz Creek Trail also goes to Indian Henry's Hunting Ground.
The trail begins at Longmire and joins the Wonderland Trail approximately 0.1 mile above Longmire. In another 0.1 mile the trail crosses the Longmire/Paradise road and enters old growth forest and climbs somewhat steeply for 1.7 miles to the junction with the Rampart Ridge Trail. From there the trail descends to Kautz Creek, with a log bridge crossing. Note: Washouts of this log bridge are not uncommon, so it is recommended to inquire about the status of this crossing at a Wilderness Center or Ranger Station before leaving. After about 1.3 miles, the trail reaches Pyramid Creek Camp. From there it ascends via a series of switchbacks, crosses Fisher's Hornpipe Creek, and traverses along a ridge to Devil's Dream Camp (5 miles from Longmire). The trail then rises gradually for another mile before reaching the ranger patrol cabin in the meadows of Indian Henry's.
