See Mount Adams and nearby Gilbert Peak from the high ridge. Walk a bit easier up the wide trail with thinning pines to the highest open and narrower ridge section where Mount Rainier pops into view for the final 100 ft along with the entire main ridge of the Goat Rocks Wilderness, including Gilbert Peak, Ives Peak, Old Snowy Mountain, Hawkeye Point, and Johnson Peak! And along the ridge continuing SW from Bear Creek Mountain to the main ridge is the serrated Devil’s Horn up to Tieton Peak (pronounced TIE-it-tun peek). Far to the N, Mount Stuart and the Alpine Lakes Wilderness can also be spotted on a clear day from the boulders on top. Return the same way for the simplest descent to the TH.

There is one other option for the descent. Although shorter than the main trail at less than 1/2 mi (and about an hour down, which is the only direction recommended), the ridge N then NE back to the meadows from the summit is more trying than it appears—with some drop-offs—but not without its charm and allure to press on as you keep the amazing vistas a while longer. About a hundred yards N from the top, hike left without trouble around black rock, then scramble briefly nearest the ridgeline with a bit of loose rock.

Next, stay on or barely right of the crest to miss some brush (although missing all of it may prove difficult). Continue to bushwhack, with no trail, to meet the ridge at a wide saddle. Following the saddle is a small bump you must climb; be careful to avoid the sheer rock wall to the left. Stay in the center of the ridge for a time, then right again easier. The route becomes narrower and tree-covered in spots to a small saddle before the last little bump (above 6800 ft) with sharp black rock surrounding it.
