Climb along steep but scenic Cool Creek Trail to the top of Hunchback Mountain and the Devils Peak Lookout, where you can spend the night if you are so inclined and brought your sleeping bag. The Cool Creek Trail 794 begins to climb immediately as you leave the poorly marked trailhead. The track ascends through dense forest, reaching the first of many switchbacks in 250 yards. Soon you’ll see tall rhododendrons, which bloom in June, lining the sides of the trail. There will be a steep path to the right at a switchback 0.6 mile from the trailhead.
