“This trail leads over the top of Kelly Butte where you'll find a fire lookout and a fantastic view of Rainier.”— Patrick Heyboer
Start heading up. It gets steep in some spots, but overall not too bad. The dirt is a little loose in sports. After the switchbacks, the trail becomes more gradual and a little less exposed. Continue and you'll see the lookout with almost 360 degree views. Now look behind you and enjoy.
The lookout was open when I was there, no one in uniform either.
The trail continues north descending all the way to the river.
