Hiking Long View Peak

The Long View Peak Trail is a connector trail on Cougar Mountain. The most direct route for reaching this trail is to hike from the Jim Whittaker Wilderness Peak Trailhead. The eastern end of the Long View Peak Trail connects to the Wilderness Creek Trail.

At this junction start out heading west for 0.1 mile, arriving at the Ring Road Trail junction on your left. Carry on straight for another 0.2 mile to complete the Long View Peak Trail. The trail carries on from here but changes names and becomes the Deceiver Trail. There is also a short spur trail here leading to the former viewpoint that gave the Long View Peak Trail its name, but the trees have grown in over the years obscuring the view.
