For Lily Basin Stock TH, continue 5 mi farther on FR-48, turn right up the gravel driveway less than 5 mi to the end (140 mi, 3 hours from Portland). Lily Basin Stock TH is quieter and begins a few hundred feet higher with a slightly shorter spur Trail 86A to meet the main trail. The only caveat is that you must quickly drop about 100 ft in elevation to meet the main trail, which must be regained on your return at the end of the day.

ROUTE: From Lily Basin (lower) TH at the pullout off FR-48, sign in at the free self-issue Wilderness Permit station and take Lily Basin Trail 86 for 5 mi up to the faint spur Trail 86A juncture on the left (no sign, sometimes marked with an orange flag). Coming from Lily Basin Stock (upper) TH, hike more than 5 mi up and down the spur Trail 86A to the juncture with Trail 86.

Continue to traverse E easily through the mossy forest 2000 ft above Glacier Lake on the wider trail with a few larger Douglas fir and cedar another mile to the long NW ridge of Johnson Peak. Then look to the right through the trees for a shot of Angry Mountain across the valley. Follow the center of the sweet ridge SE on the narrow and slightly overgrown path past good-sized cedar with glimpses left of nearby Mount Rainier that only improve as you ascend. The route steepens at 2 mi from Lily Basin TH briefly as you head right (S) under the top of a small ridge bump. At roughly 2 5 mi from the THs is one of only a few switchbacks on the entire hike! It’s coming down from a tiny ridge bump where the trail has been reworked steeply through fallen trees. Pass through more thick brush and wild berries moving right (S) of another ridge bump to the ridge again. There is a better look at Mount Rainier and Packwood Lake as you hike left well below the ridge for a bit at around 3 mi and an hour from the THs.
