Located in the central part of the Mt. Adams Ranger District, Middle Trail leaves Forest Route 24 near Little Goose Campground. It travels through small second-growth timber over rolling grades. The trail crosses Forest Routes 091 and 100, several streams and passes a small lake before entering the berry fields. The trail ends on Forest Route 24 near the Surprise Lakes.
The trail features small meadows, lakes, and berry fields. This was the main Native American access route to the berry fields prior to roads being built in the early 1940s. Today the trail is moderately used by motorized trail users. Streams are crossed by bridges built by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930s.
Directions: From Trout Lake, Travel west on State Highway 141 past Mt. Adams to the forest boundary. At the boundary, 141 becomes Primary Forest Route 24. Follow 24 northwest for approximately 5 miles to Forest Route 8831. Follow 8831 north for 0.2 miles to the trailhead.
Distance: 6.0 miles
