A (rough draft of a) loop in the Western Cascades that incorporates some of my favorite areas and some that I haven't yet visited. Themes of this loop: lush green coniferous forest, pristine creeks, waterfalls, rewarding vistas, and lakes. This is less of a defined loop and more of an idea/personal workshop for a variety of loop options.

Steep, rough bushwhack/scramble
S of here is a bushwhack thru thick vegetation & srambling until Opal Falls
Approx. location Opal Falls
