"A 7.4-mile backpack from the Staircase Ranger Station to Flapjack Lakes. This popular route climbs to a series of alpine lakes that sprinkle the high shelves around Mount Gladys. The Flapjack Lakes camping area has received such heavy use that rehabilitation efforts have been undertaken to revegetate the trampled spots, and the limited permits required for camping here are issued at the Staircase Ranger Station. Gladys Divide makes a fine side trip from the Flapjack Lakes, and the Black and White Lakes Trail offers a more wild and remote destination." Read more

"Sometimes in the Olympic Mountains it takes a while to get to your destination. The trailhead to Flapjack Lakes—two emerald-green lakes below Sawtooth Ridge—starts way down in the Skokomish River Valley amid some of the biggest trees on the east side of the peninsula. You’ll be tired when you finally emerge at the sublime lakes, but the cold blue water and jagged skyline peaks will wash away memories of the long journey." Read more
