This trail offers a modest trek in the vicinity of Washington Pass, climbing into the larches of the timberline to reach a deep lake surrounded by impressive walls and pinnacles of granite. The trail begins by running eastward through the subalpine forest beside the highway. It soon turns south, climbing moderately through a sparse growth of large mountain hemlocks. Gaps in the trees offer early views across Washington Pass; the tawny summit is Cutthroat Peak.
