WTA Pro Tip: Save a copy of our directions before you leave! App-based driving directions aren't always accurate and data connections may be unreliable as you drive to the trailhead.

Getting There

From eastbound Highway 20, turn right at Rainy Pass; the parking area is directly off the highway. Take the trail for the Heather Maple Pass Loop trail and begin the trail counter-clockwise. The trailhead has a large parking area with restrooms and picnic tables.
