Double Peaks Trail #735


This most difficult trail is in the Olallie Lake Scenic Area. This is a lightly used, steep trail to a beautiful summit and a nice side trip from the Pacific Crest Trail #2000. The summit offers great views of Mount Jefferson to the south and Mount Hood to the north.

This trail begins at Pacific Crest Trail #2000 (5,360’) near the southeast end of Cigar Lake and ends at the saddle between Double Peaks (5,980’). The trail follows the south shore of Cigar Lake briefly before heading southwest through a meadow towards Double Peaks. After 0.2 mile the trail begins a short series of steep switchbacks to a bench where the trail levels slightly (5,480’). The trail continues uphill 0.2 mile to a second series of steep switchbacks, then up to the saddle between Double Peaks.
