"This abandoned trail up Buck Mountain was recently reopened by the Washington Trails Association. Views are limited, but so are crowds, making this peaceful hike perfect on an overcast winter’s day or during late spring when a host of blossoming rhododendrons brighten the way. Technically, this trail starts at the abandoned Rainbow Campground, but most folks begin from FR 2620, where parking is better. Trail No. 892.1 steadily ascends a ridge, switch backing through second-growth Douglas-firs and hemlocks. Salal and rhodies line the well-constructed tread. Elbo Creek is out of view in the ravine below, but you can hear it cascading downslope." Read more
