Logging paid for most of the trails in the Cascades, so sometimes hikers must expect to hike the terrain that provided that rich stock of timber. This trail starts on an old logging road, leads through old clear-cuts—now nicely regrown as lush berry meadows and forest stands—and enters lush old second-growth forest. It’s a great way to experience both the natural and human history of the area, while enjoying some remarkable wild country around a pristine alpine lake.

Getting There: The directions in the guide are a bit off, so take your GPS to find the parking lot. On the Trail: For me it was a relatively strenuous climb for the first couple of hours mostly out in the open. Some nice fields of wild flowers, and some good views. But in all, no a repeatable hike, and not one that I would recommend.
