Overview: A lovely hike through old growth forest climbing to stunning views of Mt Rainier. The trail starts in Mount Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest and follows Huckleberry Creek to the Mt Rainier NP boundary, where you pass a long-abandoned ranger cabin. Foot-logs are in place to cross most of the feeder creeks, and the trail climbs steadily to Forest Lake wilderness camp (one site only). Beyond the camp, the trail steepens and quickly gains the Sourdough Ridgeline, where you join the Sourdough Ridge Trail. AMAZING views of Mt Rainier!
This is a difficult hike. Arrive fit and prepared or this could get ugly.
This hike is listed as One-Way.
