TBD based on where folks are coming from

The rustic gable-roofed Thorp Mountain Lookout, built in 1931, offers stunning views of Rainier, Stuart, Daniel and the Dutch Miller Gap peaks. The trail boasts of a steep flower meadow in the summer and bright fall colors in the fall.

We will be doing a loop with the lookout being the mid-point. Total distance will be 10 miles with 2300 ft in elevation. The trail has been neglected in past years and may prove rough and challenging but the views from the lookout will be worth it. On a clear day Mt.Rainier is picture perfect and the Alpine Lakes wilderness stretches out in the distance. We will stop at a local eatery for a post-hike repast and socializing prior to returning home. Feel free to contact me with any questions.
