Great secluded hike. I did a variation on the listing that began at Paul's Peak TH. Distance from there to the junction with the Wonderland is 3.1 miles. Distance from Mowich Lake to that junction is 3.2, so distance is very similar, though I expect I shaved off a bit of elevation. Signs say that it is 10.1 miles one way to Golden Lakes. I clocked about 10.5, but did a bit of exploring once at the camp. It also looks like the route we took diverges where the trail crosses the Mowich River. We crossed a bit further east. There is an obvious packed trail lined with large stones and marked by cairns along the riverbed. The bridge across the South Mowich River was missing a piece of railing and sagging so that it was splashed by the water ever so slightly and was wet on the top. With the raging river below, I took things very slowly. We did this as a day hike, so turned around after reaching Golden Lakes camp. There was some work going on at the patrol cabin and one of the guys pointed us to campsites 4 and 5, where there is a tremendous view of the largest of the lakes as well as back down the valley to the west. There is a peak a boo view of Mount Rainier here as well. Definitely try to find at spot at 4 or 5 if you can. This hike takes place almost entirely in old-growth forest and mostly on gentle switchbacks. It is the least scenic of any of the Wonderland Trail segments I've hiked, but rewarding and not at all busy on a Wednesday.

Beautiful. Ipsut Creek to Pass was brutal. Also overgrown switchbacks with lots of bear scat. Surprised I didn't startle one... or vice versa!

HikingBugsFeeGreat!Over grown

The trail was beautiful this time of year, with wildflowers all through the pass and the Ipsut Creek waterfall roaring. We steeled ourselves to the uphill trek back to Mowich by sitting on rocks at the waterfall and eating our lunch. There are a lot of bugs because the flowers are all in bloom, and sections of the trail in the pass are thick with brush and a bit tedious to push through. Definitely recommend hiking poles for the pass; the steep descent from the Mowich Lake part of the trail down to the forest floor and then ascent to get back up are INCREDIBLY steep! We loved the challenge, though.

The new plank & log bridges put in by NPS allow you to bike all the way to Isput Campground, shortening your hike to the suspension bridge & mouth of Carbon Glacier.

HikingWashed out

Carbon river road trail is flooded on the evenings of very hot days, due to planks of wood they installed. Plan to get your feet wet when returning in the evenings.

Creek crossing today with how hot it is was not possible. Sunk up to my waist in three different spots. Better to take the Emmons trails and gain the ridge right now.

Lake George is a must hike but would not be complete without bagging the fire lookout named Gobblers Knob. We did this as an overnight and I would definitely come back.

Lovely hike to Ipsut Falls. Trail was in great condition for an easy if long hike. Payoff at the falls was absolutely gorgeous! Arrived at trailhead around on Sunday 9am. Trail didn’t feel crowded until we were close to leaving anyway, 1:30-2:00.
