this trail no longer goes all the way along the ridge. it ends at the trail to Grand Valley.

Beautiful views, but NO trail. If you like skating on shale, scaling ridges and having you wife tell you "We had a plan, and this wasn't it!" - then go for it. Otherwise, not recommended. Caught the trail from Grand Pass, after Gladys Lake. I can't imagine taking the trail from the first entrance off Grand Pass

From the trail-head at Obstruction point, we took the Lillian Ridge Trail to the junction of the Lilian Ridge-way Trail and the Gran Pass Trail. On a clear day we were afforded views from Mt. Olympus to Jaun de Fuca straights. Even though the round trip was only 3.5 miles, our mid sixties Missouri bodies were totally whooped by the end.

The scenery and the trail was spectacular from beginning to end. Well worth the effort! Heck, just the drive to obstruction point was spectacular!

This route is fantastic, but there is no "trail" per se. It is not maintained by the NPS and is off-trail route described in several climbing guides. There are several sections of extremely loose, steep rock.
