Hamaker Loop Trail #1062


This is a loop trail off of the Lake West Trail through old growth Douglas-fir forests. This trail provides views of Minnehaha Creek and the rocky outcrop of Hamaker Butte. About halfway through the trail near Hamaker Bluffs, one can catch a view of Crater Lake Rim, Mt. Thielson, and Mt. Bailey. The trail continues gradually down hill from this point.

Dogs are not allowed on designated nordic ski trails.
