This six mile trail is located west of Trout Lake, WA and northeast of Indian Heaven Wilderness. This trail offers small meadows and lakes, and access to berry fields.  Connects to Service Trail #35, the only other motorized trail in the Mount Adams Ranger District.

Trail #26 leaves Forest Road 24 at the lower trailhead near Little Goose Campground (area is unavailable). It travels through small second-growth timber over rolling grades. The trail crosses Road 8800-091 and Road 8800-100. The trail crosses several streams and passes a small lake before entering the berry fields. The trail ends on Road 24 near the Surprise Lakes at the upper trailhead. This was the main Native American access route to the berry fields prior to roads being built in the early 1940s. Today the trail is heavily used by motorized trail users. There are challenging hill climbs and creek crossings.

The trail is heavily used by motorized trail users. Use caution on or around motorized vehicles.
