Camp Hughes Loop

OutAndBack • 7.4 mi • 0 ft

Starting along the marshland at the south end of Liberty Lake, this hike takes you through mixed forests, which consist of grand and Douglas fir, western hemlock, western red cedar, and several deciduous species, as well as three species of pines. Then you climb more than 1,200 feet to reach the Camp Hughes Cabin. Past the cabin the route descends, following abandoned roadbeds back to lake level. This route is open yearlong and camping along it is permitted in places. However, the trailhead, campground, and the road leading to them is closed during the winter months.
