This trail is in Mt. Skokomish Wilderness and travels through a quiet, old growth forest. Peek-a-boo views of Lake Cushman, Prospect Ridge, Dow Mountain, and Lightning Peak may be seen on the ascent. The trail travels through a quiet, old growth forest, and from the ridge loop trail, views of Bear Gulch Valley, Mt. Ellinor, Mt. Washington, Mt. Pershing, and the distant Huckleberry drainage may be seen.

This trail has been adopted by a dedicated volunteer group and receives maintenance year round.

The trail is extremely steep and is very hard on the legs coming down. Use caution. Ice axe (when snow is present), good hiking boots and the ten essentials are highly recommended. The ridge route is marked with orange diamonds to help with route finding in winter conditions.
