If you want the best possible views with the shortest hiking distance, this trail is for you. Few 5-mile hikes offer the quality of views you’ll find here. You’ll cross steeply sloped alpine meadows, explore cool pine forests, climb through granite rock gardens laced with heather and huckleberries, and stare in awe at the jagged skyline created by the massive hulk of Mount Stuart. All in all, this is one of my favorite hikes in one of my favorite parts of the Cascades— the magical Teanaway Country.
