An easy trail with incredible views at the top! Stop at the first view point, but make sure you continue to the top for even better views.

Beautiful late June day. Wildflowers in full bloom and views of the mountain were amazing. Up in the meadows we saw an enormous bear. What a sight. Would do this hike again.

Packwood Lake Trail

I work at this lake 1 or 2 days a week for Energy Northwest's Packwood Lake Hydro Electric Project down in Packwood. Love this lake. Good fishing for Rainbow and a leader up into other trail heads and lakes.

I would recommend coming out on the Bench Trail that exits North of our Intake Building and Spill Way. This trail offers mountain views of Rainier, Box Canyon and the Tatoosh Range on the way back to the parking lot. Stay right at the first Y in the trail as the trail to the left is nicknamed Dyson Pass and climbs in elevation with tons of rocks and no views only to meet back up with the lower/right trail in roughly 1 mile. It's 4.5 miles no matter how you slice it back to the parking lot. The lower trail follows Lower Lake Creek for a while too.

I've uploaded some fun pictures of this lake at times of the year when most wouldn't be able to see it. The zoom photo of Johnson's Peak is when it was loaded with just over 160 inches of snow. Enjoy...

Stop in and say hi if you see me working up there!

This trail is true to the ol' saying, "Up hill both ways..."

Great work out and the trip in ended with 3 Brook trout worth keeping. Used an all orange Wedding Ring on a Spinning Reel.

Beautiful views! Up hill the entire way but worth it. The biting flies sucked, but fortunately they preferred my fiancé' over myself. Don't worry, she never reads this stuff......

I will say this, please help people pack out what they packed in. Thanks...

Zig Zag Trail

The road from Sunset Falls camp ground is still pretty rough, but no worse than last summer. Trail to the lake is in good condition, very little overgrowth (I cleared out a lot of the minor obstructions on my way back up as an excuse to take a break).

The lake was again beautiful! we arrived about 5pm and nobody was there the 3 hours we fished and hiked around the lake. Again, fish jumping out of the water constantly, but no bites. really need to learn to fly fish.

The trail is steep, but a gem just outside of Battle Ground. drive is close to 1 hr from Sunset Falls due to the pot holes in the road, but worth the journey.
