Overview

The areas surrounding Interstate 90 are scattered with forest roads, old and new alike, with many leading to epic views of the surrounding mountains. This trail is fairly short and follows a forest road roughly 2000 feet up the mountainside to a nice lookout spot. The route starts out as a well-maintained gravel road that slowly gets worse in condition as you go along but should be easily doable in a regular SUV. For camping enthusiasts, many primitive campsites are dispersed along the route with a particularly scenic one at the end of the trail overlooking Lake Kacheelus and I-90 in the distance
