Due to a rockslide blocking the road to the trailhead, you can only access this trail if you come in on FS Road 1993 from Cougar Dam. The road is located right next to the Echo trailhead on the east side of the lake. Five miles up is the Saddle Trail head which climbs about 1300 ft in 1.8 miles to the Olallie Trail just north of the Horse Pasture Mtn. junction.. You can also drive another 6 miles past this point (the road is in good shape) to the Pat Saddle Trailhead, The trail runs right thru here, and you can head south about 3 miles to the top of Olallie Mtn or north 6.5 miles back to Horse Pasture Mtn.

INACCESSIBLE!! there are two huge landsides 6 miles before the trail head. we went over the first.it consisted of a rockslide.huge boulders. but we made it threw alright. about half a mile up from that there is another huge rockslide at least twice the size and going over the edge of a steep cliff along with a crap ton of mud.we were very disappointed but it simply wasn't safe to go around. all the trails up that road are closed. they need to update these trails more often
