Providing access to Bowan Pass, the Rainbow Lake Trail also allows hikers access to deep blue Rainbow Lake. Used mostly by backpackers, the trail lies deep within a network of other access trails.
Its main use is in conjunction with the Rainbow Creek trail and Bridge Creek trail, to help hikers make a more than 30 mile loop through McAlester Pass, ending either in Stehekin, or just off the North Cascades Highway.
