Lemei Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"Panoramic views, wide-open fields, and a chance to stand on top of something are usually among my requirements for a good hike. So, when I stumbled across the Indian Heaven Wilderness, I have to admit I was skeptical; how interesting could a series of lakes through the woods really be? But this impressive scenery will keep the most extreme of alpine enthusiasts mesmerized. This hike is best done late summer or early fall, when the berries are ripe, the fields are bursting with color, and the mosquitoes are minimal."
--Adrienne Schaefer, Day & Section Hikes Pacific Crest Trail: Washington (Wilderness Press).
"Hike across vibrant meadows and descend to the shore of Lemei Lake before climbing to the junction with Indian Heaven Trail."
--Fred Barstad, Hiking Washington's Mount Adams Country (Falcon Guides).
"Hike across flower-covered slopes and meadows and past rugged Lemei Rock to a junction with Indian Heaven Trail near Cultus Lake. Hike a short distance off the Lemei Trail, to beautiful alpine Lake Wapiki."
