This ten and half mile route is on a good grade for the first three miles as it winds through the Railroad Creek Valley. It then circles Hart Lake (3.5 miles) and switchbacks up to Crown Point Falls, Lyman Lake (7.5 miles), and on to Cloudy Pass. It ties in to the Pacific Crest Trail on the Agnes side of Cloudy Pass. There are opportunities for camping at the beginning of the trail (Holden Campground), Hart Lake, Rebel Camp (1 mile beyond Hart Lake), Lyman Lake, and at Cloudy Pass. Lyman Lake is closed to camping and fires within 200 feet of the lake shore. Bears are frequently seen in Railroad Creek and users should have bear proof camps. Users should also anticipate contact with lots of people. This area is heavily visited from July through September. The stream crossing below Crown Point can be hazardous in the spring. This trail receives annual maintenance.
