“A beautiful run with stunning views - one of the 100 Classic routes in Washington!”— Jackie Clark
This run was featured in the The Mountaineers 100 Classic Washington Hikes book.
Toilets are available in the parking lot.
Pass a waterfall relatively early on and then two creek crossings shortly thereafter- varying in depth depending on the recent rainfall. Switchbacks will take you through the old growth forest until you find yourself above the treeline with Red Mountain in front of you and Rainier to your back.
Continue through the scree fields (obvious trail in the middle), and use the rock to your right for balance along this steep slope - e.g. the katwalk. Enjoy the views!
