Hiked from the Middle Lewis River Trailhead up the Quartz Creek Trail to the junction with the Quartz Creek Butte Trail at the end of Sept. The forest if stunning with enormous old-growth Douglas Fir. The trail undulates up and down, sometimes steeply above Quartz Creek, and crosses several side streams, which were no problem to cross in late Sept., although the rocks were slippery. Our trip was a little early for the best fall colors.★ ★ ★ ★ ★
