Trail #3 Craggy Peak

Area Status: Open
This area is Open

This is a Multi-use Trail.

Winding through a tree plantation and along a forested ridge, this 5.3 mile trail offers glimpses of Mount Rainier and Shark Rock as well as stunning views of Mount Adams as it connects with Boundary Trail #1 near Craggy Peak, 5.3 miles from Wright Meadow Trail. 

The Craggy Peak Trail #3 starts at its intersection with Wright Meadow Trail #80 on Forest Road 9327. The trail climbs gently–first in a tree plantation, then along a forested ridge. After 2.5 miles you will come to the junction with the Stabler Camp Trail #17. As you continue, you will have glimpses of Mount Rainier and Shark Rock. One mile later, near the first small subalpine meadow, Blue Lake can be seen to the east, 400 feet below. A short distance further, Basin Camp Trail #3B drops into a glacial cirque lined with meadows and wildflowers. At the bottom is a good camping spot with water and stunning views of Mount Adams. Craggy Peak Trail connects with Boundary Trail #1 near Craggy Peak, 5.3 miles northeast from Wright Meadow.
