Sunrise Peak Trail Professional Review and Guide
"This is considered one of the best short hikes in the Dark Divide, a proposed wilderness area called after an early settler whose name was Dark. A winding, rough trail to a former lookout leads children up and through one of the Gifford Pinchot’s most magnificent old-growth forests, and out into the meadows of Juniper Ridge.
Alpine parkland and berry bushes lie all around. Tell children to look outward to find, set in a triangle, the three white-capped volcanoes—Rainier, Adams, and what’s left of St. Helens, its gaping crater. In late summer here, kids can pick all the berries they can eat."
