Bear Pot Trail #19

The Bear Pot Trail begins at a seasonal wetland. This spruce bog that may be much cooler and wetter than other sections of the trail, which soon enough will leave the damp behind and take you into a dry, quiet lodgepole pine forest. It is a short and easy trail with a 150 foot climb over the last quarter mile. The Bear Pot Trail area is also well-used by game, so keep an eye out for evidence of moose, cougar, elk, bear and deer. At about the half-mile mark you’ll come upon a historic well-decayed trapper’s cabin. Eventually the trail will meander past huge old-growth ponderosa pines, western larch and Douglas-fir, with some aspens thrown in for good measure. You’ll see interesting geographic formations, as some of the oldest rocks in Washington can be found in this area.
