A steep and dusty trail to a long, beautiful ridge where the rambling is fine, often among a band of elk.
This long trail in the William O. Douglas Wilderness offers solitude. Climbs southwest along many ridges, where the final section joins up with the Pacific Crest National Scenic Trail.
Shorter trips are possible too, including American Lake, which offers both a day hike with a camping option.
