Yellowstone Cliffs and Windy Gap Trail Professional Review and Guide
"A long, steep climb takes you through a beautiful forest, by the impressive rock formations of Yellowstone Cliffs, and over a subalpine meadow pass. The hike ends in the openness of boulder-strewn Windy Gap, a prime location for viewing the northeastern portion of Mount Rainier National Park.
Although it offers little in the way of views of Mount Rainier, the hike to Windy Gap, a lovely high-mountain meadow, increases elevation dramatically, allowing you to explore the scenic northwestern portion of the park. From Ipsut Creek Campground follow the small connector trail south to the Wonderland Trail. The Ipsut Falls spur trail intersects to the right (west) shortly after you leave Ipsut Falls Campground. If you desire, take this spur trail to gently cascading Ipsut Falls. From the spur trail, continue traveling south to the Wonderland Trail."
