This Trail Open to Hikers and Equestrian Use.

This popular 1.5 mile trail begins at Cultus Creek Campground/Trailhead and enters Indian Heaven Wilderness. It climbs steep semi-open slopes toward the summit of Bird Mountain, a 1.5-mile-long backbone ridge. The trail climbs 1,200 feet in elevation before passing through a saddle at 5,237 elevation where you will be rewarded with views of the west slope of Mt. Adams. Beyond the saddle, the trail enters large timber and eventually connects with the Pacific Crest National Scenic Trail #2000.

Trail features include abundant huckleberries in season and views of Mt. Rainier, the Goat Rocks, Sawtooth Mountain, and Sleeping Beauty. This trail is part of a 7 mile loop that passes 4 attractive lakes and connection to other trails in the Wilderness.
