Hiking Washington's Mount Adams Country

The location of the trail posted on the Topographic map is not correct. It is located in the Trapper Creek Wilderness. About 50 miles directly west of the posted position
Great access to the Trapper Creek Wilderness via forest roads outside of Carson. Steep, but short hike up the ridge before the descent to the lake.
Lake is pristine with several camp sites surrounding it with views to Rainier, Helens, Adams.
The day hike down to Trapper Creek is a heavy dayhike as the lake sits ~2000 ft above the creekbed. Worth the great views, old growth and isolated creek showing some evidence from early 1900s trapping and mining.
