The Teanaway Country is home to an assortment of birds and animals, as well as some truly magnificent wild country. It’s not protected as wilderness, so you might hear or see motorcycles along the trails, but the grandeur of the country is worth that risk—fortunately, when you encounter motorcycles they disappear quickly from sight, even if the exhaust fumes and ringing in your ears linger for a time. This trail, though open to motors, offers hikers a rewarding excursion up a beautiful mountain in one of the most stunning parts of the Cascades, and Elbow Peak provides grand views and glorious wildflower-viewing opportunities.
