You’ll start by walking the decommissioned road for .25 miles. Plant your feet carefully here, as the road is nearly overgrown with willows and other brush. Keep your eyes peeled as you continue, because after that .25 miles you’ll find a rough trail cutting off to the right through an old timber operation. Scout for cairns as the tread is difficult to follow without them. At just shy of .5 miles, the trail suddenly becomes infinitely better, with solid, followable tread.
This part of the trail is characterized by old forest—stands of ancient fir and hemlock throng the trailside. Before long, you’ll stroll into a perfect, flat and grassy meadowland. Dropping just a bit, you’ll find an old cabin site. Turn left to keep out of the rocks. The trail climbs here, taking you back along the summit crest.
The path here is a bit more scrambly than elsewhere along this trail. Take your time as you contour up to the old lookout site, and you’ll be fine. The former lookout—now entirely gone—is at 4,974 feet, and is a great place to rest after a nice climb.
