Craggy Peak Trail Professional Review and Guide

"Bear with us. This may not be the type of trail most hikers think of when they plan a “wilderness” outing. Yes, this isn’t wilderness. This is a forest that has been heavily impacted by humans, but which still has a wild beauty that is worth the effort to enjoy this long, forest ramble.

The thick forest canopy here effectively shuts out most of the potential views from the early part of the trail, but that’s okay. This is a beautiful forest to hike in. The old-growth fir, hemlock, and cedar forest is home to countless species of wildlife. If you want more to look at than forest, you will enjoy the small flower-filled meadows dotting the route. These lush green fields also offer the best long-distance views; the top of Mount Rainier occasionally “peaks” up in the north."
