Stafford Lookout Trail: The road up is paved most of the way which was quite nice. I used the gps coordinates from the wa trails site to the lower parking area. Once there, there is a road to the left that goes up right to the trailhead. Many steep-ish dips in the road would make it iffy for lower clearance vehicles. I did the Stafford Lookout trail. Once you cross the bridge the trail appears to go straight ahead, but veering to the left is an old road that heads up. It is a moderate grade the whole way up, but a shorter hike. Maybe 1.5 miles one way at most. Few fall colors, lots of leaves on the ground but the view at the top is great for the little effort required to get there.
