Features: Lake — Swimming — Views — Wildflowers — Wildlife [Add/Remove]

Description [Suggest Changes]

The trail starts at the end of FS Road 1260 and climbs gently through old-growth forest. The trail passes through two small harvest areas within the first 3/4 mile, offering views of Mt. Rainier. The trail then enters Wilderness and continues toward Packwood Lake.

Within a short distance of the lake, the trail leaves the wilderness and descends to the lake. The trail contours along the lake where it passes many campsites along the lakeshore. The route then climbs and re-enters the wilderness. The trail ascends 2,400 ft through forested switchbacks to Lost Lake. Continue your climb above Lost Lake to the junction with the Bluff Lake Trail and the Clear Lost Trail.
