Description

This unmaintained trail is steep and challenging, but the stunning views are ample reward for the hard work. From the 3-way junction with the Comet Falls Trail and the Rampart Ridge Trail, the trail to Mildred Point heads northwest. Climb up a ridgeline through scattered wildflower fields, clumps of trees and snow patches. This isolated spot does not see much traffic so you may well have the place to yourself. Arrive at a spectacular vantage point with 360-degree, unobstructed views of the Kautz Glacier, Kautz Valley, Rainier, Mount St. Helens, and Mt. Adams, on a clear day.

Use caution near the edge of the cliff, this area is unstable and a 1000-foot plunge would result from a slip.

Flora & Fauna

Bugs. Marmot, deer. Avalanche lilies, Indian paintbrush, lupine.
