10 miles of hiking • 2500' elevation gain •

As I was driving up to Grouse Vista, I saw the WA discovery pass sign and realized I didn't have any cash to buy a pass, so I started at the gated logging road, which on some maps is supposed to be where you pick up the southern end of the180 trail. I took two wrong turns, but eventually found myself below the ridge with the indian pits on a road that was very similar to the Grouse Vista trail, and it led me right up to the summit.

The wildflowers are at their peak right now, amazing displays and gorgeous views all around today.
