Owyhigh Lakes Trail

Owyhigh Lakes Trail Professional Review and Guide

"This hike is a steep then gradual ascent to mountain lakes surrounded by a meadow of wildflowers and the majestic, jutting Governors Ridge. The trail to Owyhigh Lakes sees fewer hikers than many other hikes in the park, perhaps because it offers an uneventful first 3. 0 miles of uphill and no view of Mount Rainier.

However, those who forego the Owyhigh Lakes Trail are missing out. An extensive field of assorted wildflowers separates the well-maintained trail from the picturesque lakes, and the jutting bluffs of Governors Ridge frame the lakes beautifully."
