14 miles of hiking • 2000' elevation gain •
Wow what a beautiful area! I started from the Blue Lake TH and took it to the Butte Camp Trail and headed up to the Loowit. In your face views of MSH, and very quiet on this side of the mountain, I only saw two groups of hikers and one group of trail maintenance workers in the 6 hours I was out. I headed back down on the Sheep Canyon Trail- which has a HUGE stand of Noble fir. It was magical.
