Black Canyon (Umtanum Ridge)

The last section of road to the trailhead is rough. We had blue sky and sunshine both days, view of Mt Rainier for sunset and sunrise from our campsite about 1/2 a mile from the top of the ridge, well down in the trees. 360 degree view from the ridge. It's a nice short lollipop type hike with plenty of changing scenery. There is no water past the .5 mi mark (the cabin), and that will be iffy in the summer.
