East Side Trail

Want to gain some elevation on a hike that will take you out and about for a few hours? The East Side Trail is an 11.5-mile hike in just one direction, meaning you can make this one as long or short as you want.

The trail takes hikers from the Ohanapecosh Campground north to Chinook Pass, but according to the National Park Service, a lot of people just hiking for the day park at the Grove of the Patriarchs and start there.

You'll see a little bit of everything: varied landscapes, groves of old-growth trees, babbling brooks, stream crossings and much more. There's something for just about everyone on this hike.

This trip is best taken in the late spring through the summer due to snow being on the trail throughout the majority of the year after October.
