Longmire to Mowich Lake Professional Review and Guide
"A majority of those who hike the entire Wonderland Trail begin at Longmire and travel clockwise. Thus, the first section you will probably tackle is around the west side of the mountain between Longmire and Mowich Lake. This is a long and relatively tough section, with lots of ups and downs and some steep trails. It is also outstandingly beautiful, so you don’t have to wait to get to the good stuff. The scenery at Indian Henry’s Hunting Ground, Emerald Ridge, Klapatche Park, and Sunset Park is as good or better than anything else in the park, or just about anywhere else in the United States for that matter."
