Hike the relatively easy section of the Mount Aix Trail from East Mount Aix Trailhead, passing Buck Lake, to a campsite on Dog Creek. Along the trailside, ponderosa pine and grand fir are the predominant trees, with a few Douglas firs mixed in. Along the ridgeline, mats of kinnikinnick cover sections of the sandy ground. Two trails appear to start from the East Mount Aix Trailhead: The one you want heads southwest on the left side of the signboard. There is a MT. AIX TRAIL sign on a tree to the left of this trail. The route leaves the trailhead heading southwest but soon turns west along a poorly defined ridgeline.The USGS quad map (Timberwolf Mountain) shows the other trail to be the correct route, but the trail has been rerouted. Along the trailside, ponderosa pine and grand fir are the predominant trees, with a few Douglas firs mixed in. Along the ridgeline, mats of kinnikinnick cover sections of the sandy ground.
