Old growth forest, with tantalizing glimpses of Lake Cushman. Open views from the summit and upper portion of the ridge route.
This trail is in the Mt. Skokomish Wilderness. Peek-a-boo views of Lake Cushman, Prospect Ridge, Dow Mountain, and Lightning Peak may be seen on the ascent. The trail travels through a quiet, old growth forest, and from the ridge loop trail, views of Bear Gulch Valley, Mt. Ellinor, Mt. Washington, Mt. Pershing, and the distant Huckleberry drainage may be seen. This trail has been adopted by a dedicated volunteer group and thus receives maintenance year round. The trail is extremely steep and is very hard on the legs coming down. Use caution. Ice axe (when snow is present), good hiking boots and the ten essentials are highly recommended. The ridge route is marked with orange diamonds to help with route finding in winter conditions. This trail is considered most difficult due to steep grades.
Travel Highway 101 to Hoodsport. Turn onto State Route 119, travel 9.0 miles to the junction with FS Rd.#24. Turn left and drive approximately 3.0 miles to Mt. Rose trailhead.
