The trail is in generally good condition with many side trips to small lakes and mountain peaks. A few locations in the Fish Creek drainage are marked with cairns where the tread is not too visible. Water is generally no problem but it should be treated. Sheep are grazed through this area on odd numbered years. Many camping areas are available along the trail.

Recommended Season: 7/15 - 9/30
Termini At: Summit Trail and T31N R20E Sec. 20 (Chelan/Twisp RD)
Attractions And Considerations:
This route provides a tie between the Summit Trail and Twisp Road's Martin Creek and Foggy Dew Trails. The first 1/2 mile has very little tread and is marked with cairns. Switchbacks begin at a little less than 1/2 mile and end at the top of the ridge. This point, at over 8,000 ft., is one of the highest trail access points in Washington State. There are no campsites along the trail. It is a very rough and primitive route for horses. Recommend only for experienced stock and handlers.

The trail then leaves Company Creek and follows Hilgard Creek, a tributary, to the head of the basin, and switchbacks to Hilgard Pass. The trail is narrow and the tread is in bad shape in places. There are plenty of flat spots for camps and water is plentiful. Hilgard Pass can be dangerous when covered with snow. Ice axes should be taken early in the season.
