The short hike starts from milepost 134 on highway 20 and descends around 500 ft of elevation in 1.5 miles. The trail is well maintained and should take no more than 30 mins for an average hiker (times may vary). Recommended season is early thru late summer. The Ross Dam offers yet another short hike to the Ross Lake Resort which can be seen at a distance from the dam and the Ross Lake Resort ferry launch.
Colonial Peak and Pyramid Peak stand out across the range from Ross Dam.
