Backpack - Tatoosh Ridge

Ridge ramble and lake camping.

  • Strenuous
  • Challenging
  • Mileage: 18.0 mi

6:00 am at South 320th Park & Ride in Federal Way

We will use the Tatoosh lakes for our camp but explore the ridge and Tatoosh peak as well.  Tatoosh peak is the former site of a fire lookout.  If the weather cooperates we should have great views of Rainier and the Goat Rocks.
