From Tatoosh North Trailhead the Tatoosh Trail climbs into Tatoosh Wilderness through dense forest for approximately 2 miles before coming to the open subalpine terrain of Tatoosh Ridge. Following the ridge south, the trail passes many scenic openings then descends steeply to Forest Road 5290 and Tatoosh South Trailhead.
The Tatoosh Trail was originally built to access a grazing allotment for cattle. There was also a Native American trail up Tatoosh Ridge, east of the existing trail. Parts of this trail can still be found today.
Steep with exposures. Limited trailhead space at both ends. Camping opportunities along the trail are limited.
