Rainbow Loop Professional Review and Guide
"The Rainbow Loop offers a somewhat challenging day trip that climbs onto the middle slopes of the mountains for views of the Stehekin Valley and the peaks that guard it. For visitors who lack the time or inclination to tackle the more challenging trails.Just after the trail completes its initial climb and begins traversing southward, a bedrock overlook below the trail provides panoramic views of the Stehekin Valley, with the river winding through its forested bottoms. The steep-walled peaks beyond the river are outriders of Sisi Ridge and Tupshin Peak. After a long, level stretch, the trail begins climbing once more. There is another viewpoint at the edge of a grassy hillside, after which the trail climbs to the top of a timbered platform."
