Thorp Creek Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"This route offers many outstanding rewards but demands serious effort in payment. The trail has suffered years of neglect, leaving the route rough. Add the strenuous climbs and you have a hike that taxes even the toughest hikers. In return, though, hikers will ?nd views that are unmatched in this part of the state. From the ?re lookout cabin atop the heather-carpeted peak you can scan the horizon in every direction, picking out peaks and valleys throughout the Alpine Lakes Wilderness and south all the way to Mount Rainier (on clear days). The ridges rolling away from Thorp Mountain sport colorful ?ower meadows, and the blue pool of Kachess Lake sparkles in the deep valley at its foot."
