A 7.6-mile round-trip day hike from Obstruction Point to Grand Lake, or an 8.1-mile backpack one-way to Cameron Creek. This outstanding hike combines the Lillian Ridge and Grand Pass Trails to link Obstruction Point with the Cameron Valley. Along the way the route runs alpine ridges, passes sparkling lakes, and offers sweeping views of the eastern Olympics. From Obstruction Point the trail climbs onto the rounded top of Lillian Ridge, clad in grassy meadows that are populated by colonies of playful marmots. The ridgetop is soon dominated by an arid alpine tundra, in which hardy flowers like dwarf lupine, phlox, and fleabane eke out a hardscrabble existence in the high winds, short growing seasons, and lack of water found here. Spectacular scenery abounds on all sides.
