Dead Horse Creek Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"This short spur trail connects with the Skyline Trail and has great views of the Tatoosh Range, Mount Rainier, and the Nisqually Glacier.
If you want to hike the Skyline Trail but would prefer a shorter, more gradual ascent, consider the Dead Horse Creek Trail as an alternative. In August, wildflowers, including lupine and Lewis monkeyflower, line your path. Please preserve these flowers by staying on designated trails."
