A forest of thick Douglas-fir (punctuated by fat, juicy huckleberries) runs for nearly 2 miles here before it begins to thin and open up into broad, windswept meadows on the ridge top. This trail—one of the long octopus arms that comprise the wild, remote Dark Divide region of the forest—stays high and open during most of the route’s remainder. Early-summer hikers find the snow melted and wildflowers in full bloom. In addition to the bonanza of color underfoot, the Langille Ridge Trail is renowned for its beautiful vistas of distant peaks and valleys. Mount St. Helens, Mount Adams, and Mount Rainier can all be seen on clear days, and the deep, dark valleys on either side of the ridge give this area a true feeling of wilderness, even without an official wilderness designation.
