The trail is full of fallen branches and twigs, muddy in some places, and there are 3 large blowdowns. Not much in the way of flowers. The Skykomish River is in full flood and quite spectacular from the bridge.
This trail is loaded with blueberries in the fall, up further on the ridgeline.
To get there take the Beckler River road from highway 2 just east of Skykomish. This turns into a potholed road 65 up over Jack Pass and down to Road 63. Up road 63 past the Blanca Lake junction and continue to the road's end. Three trails take off from the large parking lot - West Cady, Quartz Creek, and Dishpan Gap
