All very good information and just what I was in need of. I particularly like the idea of a " half way treat " .....the road is hiway 410 and just north of the pass( chinook ) there's a parking area on the west side of the road. which also has the out houses...I believe the n.bound trail crosses the road on an elevated bridge and then follows the road on the west side for aprox. 3/4mile before peeling off to resume it's northward way. this rest area gets pretty busy during the season. and I imagine lots of casual day hikers use this as their start point for hiking along the ridge.
