Ironstone - Burnt Mountain Trail

Ironstone - Burnt Mountain Trail Professional Review and Guide

"Few times in life do hikers get the opportunity to enjoy a wonderful hiking adventure along a high, alpine ridge in a stunning wilderness area without first having to climb that ridge under their own steam. This is one of those rare opportunities.

This route starts high from a road-end trailhead just outside the wilderness boundary, then rambles along the ridgeline of Burnt Mountain, onto the shoulder of Shellrock Peak, and then under the summit of Ironstone Mountain. Along the way, you’ll explore wonderful ancient forests, cool forest glades, and flower-filled alpine meadows, and have ample opportunities to see wildlife and wide wilderness vistas—all without the thigh-burning ascents and knee-grinding descents that usually are the prices paid for such stellar scenery."

Wonderful trail suitable for all of the family. Many Mountain vista's and wildlife to view. If you want a trail on the east side of Washington with no other people, then this is it.
