I have been up this trail several times. I would consider this more of a gateway trail to Mt. Adams. It offers nice views up the Cascade Creek drainage and the Salt Creek Drainage. Graveyard Camp used to be a junction for the trail to Looking Glass Lake, it seems that the US Forest Service decided that the cut across trail does not need to be there. the sign is gone and the route is not shown on newer maps. (or the maps I have). I have the benefit of owning Columbia National Forest map from 1940. It's a shame so much history is forgotten. This area used to have shelters and structures all over the area.

hands-down, this is my favorite hike in the Mt. Adams area, just as another reviewer said. beautiful close-up views of Adams and lots of solitude.
