Ape Canyon Trail is 5.5 miles long receives medium use, and features volcanic landscapes, and high country views.

Ape Canyon Trail begins at the crumbling edge of a mudflow and then follows an old road through a young regenerating forest. It then climbs through a remnant of old growth forest and emerges into open meadows on the east side of the ridge. It continues along the ridge through patches of old growth and standing dead trees and climbs to open meadows and volcano scoured rock at the top of Ape Canyon, where it terminates at the junction with Loowit Trail #216. There is parking at the trailhead.
