beautiful trail. Go early if nice day as it was crowded on way back up. We saw what we think was a baby gray whale as it was white, close to rocks. we actually heard before we saw it. we all laughed as someone said beluga when we saw the white. it does seem late in season to see one though.

Bird Mountain Trail

Camped at Cultus Creek Campground, a non-distinct campground next to Cultus Creek. Stayed here to have quick access to the Bird Mountain Trail hike. Did this loop with side tips to Deep Lake and Lemei Rock. Beautiful hike with views of Mount Adams, alpine meadows, Bird Mt. and Lemei Rock. A couple mile are on the famous PCT which I'd never been on before. Would have given it a higher rating if it wasn't for all the nasty mosquitoes and flies. Definitely wait until the end of August to go to this area again.

Mt Peak Back side trail

Pretty much a gravel road the whole way til it intersects the north side trail. With the elevation gradually increasing instead of stepping over roots and such, it would be better for your knees (if you already have problems) to this south side then the north side. Its still a good workout either way so have fun.

Lookout Mountain

For some reason this trail doesn't seem to get as much attention nor rated as highly as the other trails further up Cascade River Road, but I thought the views were just as gorgeous. To get to those views at the lookout tower is a workout however and the trail is not easy. After maybe 2 miles there was a section in the trail where the weeds were 6 ft tall and completely covered the trail and I couldn't even see my own feet. At 2.8 miles is the junction with the Monogram Lake trail - head left for the lookout. Another 1/2 mile to the open meadows with the first views of peaks to the south. Stunning close up views of Eldorado Peak as well as Little Devil, Big Devil, the Picket Range, Baker and more! I could also recognize familiar nearby sights such as Monogram Lake, the Hidden Lake Lookout, and Sauk Mountain. On a hot July day it took me about 4 1/2 hours up and 2 1/2 hours down.

Lava Canyon Trail

This was our first hiking event in an attempt to get ready for our trip to summit Mount St. Helens. This trail is not one that I would recommend to anyone hiking with small children as the trail gets very steep and narrow in many areas. There is also a 50-foot vertical steel ladder halfway through the walk. We started at 11:00am and finished just before 3:00pm.

well this trail is really easy. It is a beautiful walk through the woods that I took my mom on. it is an old rail line that they used to transport trees down to the very end of the Puget sound. for beauty I give it a 4 star and as a trail for hiking 2 star just cause I more or less like to go on the more intense trails.

Green Mountain Trail Via Gold Creek

My husband and I climbed two days in a row, and never found the summit, but met two groups of hikers that said you could see Seattle from the top on a clear day. The highest point we found on the trail intersected with a road, and we could only see the Olympics from that side.

My first time up, on a warm day in July, I enjoyed going up. Arriving at the upper trailhead at 5:30 p.m. on a Sunday, I had no difficulty parking, most people having left by then. I hiked mostly in the shade, with little of the hot summer sun until about 20 minutes from the peak. Incredibly steep, my trekking pole helped going up and down. I saw no sources for water drank the two liters of fluid I carried.

The view from atop: tremendous.
