Profile Explained
Starting at Longmire the trail goes a short distance and then crosses the road to begin an ascent to the ridge. The next part of the trail is relatively flat along the ridge; with particularly good views of Longmire and the Nisqually River valley just before it descends through 2 miles of long switchbacks back to Longmire.
