Surrounded by wildflowers and mountain views, working near this backcountry lake will make you feel like it's summer at last. This trail, which suffered forest fires in the 1990s, needs a little brushing and tread work to open it up to summer hikers.
The location for this trip has been changed; we are no longer meeting at the Eight-Mile trail head. Note the modified driving directions. Due to circumstances beyond our control, the tradition of Thursday Breakfast will not be honored this Thursday in Darrington. Eat first.
This trail, which has not been maintained recently, leads to Squire Creek Pass in 2 miles and 2,200 feet. The pass can also be reached by a trail up Squire Creek on the west. From the pass are great views of the East Face of Three Fingers Mountain. The trail also provides rock climbers access to nearby climbing areas.
