Hike the ridgeline between the Cispus and Lewis River drainages, passing rugged peaks and flower-covered slopes. The view is great from the pass; close by to the south is Craggy Peak and to the east is Hat Rock and the ice-covered bulk of Mount Adams. A few mountain goats inhabit these crags, so keep your eyes open for a glimpse of them. The open spots below the pass are covered with flowers in midsummer. Marginal cell-phone service is available at the pass, one of the only places where it may be possible along this hike.
