Fantastic hike up to the fire lookout with views of Mt St Helens, Rainier (faint), Adams, Hood, Jefferson, and the three sisters. One item you must have in your pack... insect repellent. The mosquitoes are everywhere. If you are a fan of views, this will make it on your list of favorites.
Awesome backpacking trip with great camp sites by lakes! We made one wrong turn though since our map was old and went up a very difficult trail that had been closed for a while... Other than that, it was pretty moderate and VERY beautiful! We did the loop going to Pansy lake then to Twin lakes (camped there) then head to Welcome lake, thats where we took a wrong turn... (camped there) then finished the loop back past pansy lake. It was about 20 miles total.
