  • Site Description:This moderate to difficult trail, to the summit of Mt. Stevens at 2650 m (8700 feet), in the Hughes Range of the Rockies, should be started early in the day. The first part of the trail grinds steadily up through a Douglas fir forest, offering limited views. As you go higher and enter the old burn, the views open up. Eventually, trees give way to ground hugging alpine vegetation, allowing you sweeping views of the Rockies to the East and the Purcells to the West. Skilled route finders can continue a further 1.5 km to Teepee Mountain at 2775 m (9100 feet). There is no water along this trail, so be sure to bring your canteen.
