This trail is within the Mark O. Hatfield Wilderness, so the usual federal wilderness area regulations and restrictions apply here. Practice Leave No Trace (LNT) backcountry skills and ethics. Camp 100 feet from fragile areas; bury human waste at least 200 feet from water, trails, and campsites. This trail is usually snowed in between November and May.

Description

This trail goes from the Wyeth Trail #411 to a four-way junction with the Gorton Creek Trail #408 and the North Lake Trail #423. From its junction with the #411 about 1.4 miles north of North Lake, the #418 makes a short, fairly steep climb up to the top of the ridge leading south to Green Point Mountain. The trail can be faint and a little hard to follow until it reaches the crest of the ridge.

The trail's gradient gets progressively less as you head south along the broad ridge. The trail is pretty well defined through here, but there are a few spots where it's possible to miss a minor turn. After 1 mile, you'll pass a junction with the Plateau Cutoff Trail #412, and after another 1.4 miles of easy running, you'll reach the end of the #418 at its junction with the Gorton Creek Trail #408.

This trail can be used to form several long and short running loops with other trails in the area.
