Compared to nearby Mt. Rose and Mt. Ellinor this is a less hiked trail, probably due to its steepness and limited views. The first mile, to mile and 1/2, is really pretty awesome if you like big trees, lotsa moss and a crashing, roaring creek. It feels like you are traveling within a forest from Lord of the Rings.... with towering moss covered rocks/trees and some of the largest old growth cedar and Douglas fir trees in the Skokomish Valley. Snow began at around the 1.5 mile mark and from there it took a bit of route finding & trail breaking to get to the ridge which is at 3200'.
