Peaceful meadows, serene lakes and views of the rugged Cowlitz Chimneys are treats for the eyes on this multiday trek.
Start on the Owyhigh Trail, passing Barrier and Buell Peaks to meet up with the Eastside Trail. Turn south and begin passing so many waterfalls, you’ll be glad you brought extra camera batteries.
At Stevens Canyon, turn north through huckleberry-laden forest along the Cowlitz Divide until you meet with the Wonderland. Head north where Indian Bar and Summerland will take your breath away with meadowy beauty.
