ROUTE: Fill out a free self-issue Wilderness Permit at the Walupt Lake TH. Begin E past the signage 150 ft and turn left on Nannie Ridge Trail 98. The wide trail works up a decent grade with 16 switchbacks and turns through the thick woods as the route narrows and gains almost 2000 ft the first 1/2 mi to the Nannie Peak saddle S of that tiny summit. The final 5 mi E to the saddle juncture mellows thankfully as the forest floor opens up and you can see Mount St. Helens and Mount Adams. There are a few tiny creeks to cross all day so finding water is never a problem.

As a much shorter day hike skipping Sheep Lake and Cispus Pass or even an add-on spur, you could turn left on the brief trail at the juncture on the saddle and ridge (unsigned) over the small downed pine onto the clear path 5 mi winding up to the old lookout site on Nannie Peak (6106 ft). There is a great shot of Mount Adams with Mount Rainier sneaking in and Goat Rocks can be seen best from the viewpoint just N of the lookout site.
