Rolling along the lower slope of Mount Adams, this trail offers mountain views and, during the early season, a forest floor carpeted with lush clumps of beargrass with bulbous white flowers. Though much of the trail is under the old fir and pine forest canopy, there are enough breaks and clearings to keep Mount Adams frequently in view. The best panoramas of the peak are found from the saddle between 5272-foot Crofton Butte and its little sibling to the south, Lower Butte (4870 feet).
