Hiked from red rock pass to blue lake first afternoon! Camped off trail first night, Then took Toutle river trail to Loowit Trail (216) ! Hiked all the way to butte camp second day! Steep drops and sketchy trail in some spots! Found fixed ropes to aid in traversing wash! We spent the day at the tree line but as can happen were socked in clouds! Found a beautiful waterfall and only saw another hiking team once in two days!

Did this a couple weeks ago and the fall color was incredible. Tough hike in spots: couple of washouts along streams can make it tricksy to pick the trail back up; be prepared and know your route. Rough road to the Blue Lake trailhead. But the views on Sheep Canyon, Toutle, and Loowit trails are worth the effort. Hiked 8 hours and never saw another soul but us.

The road leading up to the trail point has some serious potholes so watch out. Then the last 3 miles is gravel road with more potholes. The beginning of the trail is a bit tricky to find but once you are on it, you are good to go. Very pretty surroundings and views so I'm not sure why there aren't any reviews on this one.
