Marker Description: Appalacia Trailhead of Valley Way Trail to Madison Springs Hut(3.8 mi); then Gulfside Trail to Lakes of the Clouds Hut(7.9 mi); then Crawford Path and Mizpah Cutoff to Mizpah Hut(8.4 mi). Best time: late July, early August; tough to reserve huts in order of three night journey so plan way ahead. 2 1/2 days above the treeline; spectacular views if no cloudcover. Ascend from and return to Route 2 and regular bus service will take you back to car or hotel. Best hike in East.

Stay at Joe Dodd Lodge and save. Bus service from lot to Appalacia Trailhead and pickup at Mizpah trail and return. Pack light and enjoy...but prepare for adverse weather...focus on last week of July and first week of August for best chance at good weather.
