Gillette Lake/Greenleaf Overlook Professional Review and Guide
"This is an easy hike to a small quiet lake and a small ledge granting some good views. The lake and its surroundings aren’t scenically exceptional, but their formations are. Here, about 700 years ago, large portions of nearby greenleaf and Table Mountains slid off, depositing jumbled boulders and creating varying depressions, some of which eventually became lakes. The massive landslide even blocked the Columbia River’s passage (see “The gods Must Be angry” in the western Washington section). Travel through this hummocky landscape, appreciating the sheer force of nature."
