“This is a great shoulder season trail with beautiful views of Lake Billy Chinook.”— Marlys Underwood
Once on top, follow the rim as it makes a 4 mile loop to feature gorgeous views of the lake. It's important to note that there is no shade up here, so this trail is only suitable for hiking in the shoulder seasons. A summer hike here would be beyond brutal.
When you've fully enjoyed the views from the rim, follow the trail as it makes a right to cut across the southern part of the cliff to rejoin the trail from before. Descend the switchbacks back to the main road and cross to reach your car and the nearby campground.
