What the trail namers call weeds, most of us call wildflowers. The meadows visited by this trail are home to some of the finest blooming flowers in the country, and the views beyond aren’t too bad either. Look up from the brilliant floral display, and you’ll see Mount Adams on one side, Mount Rainier on another. The jagged crest of the Goat Rocks Peaks stretches to the north, and the deep blue waters of Walupt Lake lie below your feet, straight down the steep ridge wall.
