    Fred Barstad
    "Hike the mostly gentle trails and roadbeds through diverse, mostly old-growth mountain forest to the lookout high atop Quartz Mountain. At the lookout take the time to admire the fantastic view in all directions. If you have the time, it is possible to rent the lookout for an overnight stay. The roadbeds that much of this hike follow are closed to motor vehicle access by the general public. Pets must be on a leash and under physical control at all times. These trails are open to hikers and bicyclists during snow-free times and cross-country skiers during the winter season. Hiking, snowshoeing, and dogs are prohibited during the winter season."

    "Find the large trail system signboard and map above the lodge. From this trailhead, five double-track trails lead to Junction 1. For simplicity, go left on the Mountain View Trail and follow it 0.3 mile to Junction 1, a large grassy meadow. From here, stay left and walk up a road for a short way, bearing left on the first trail, called Sam’s Swoop (Sam is a perennial volunteer, worthy of a trail name). Note the diversity of plants: huckleberry, beargrass, wild strawberry, ferns, and much more." Read more
