Dayhiking Mission Ridge – Mission Peak 6876′ via the Squilchuck Trail

A recent trip from the Squilchuck TH located at the Mission Ridge Resort lower parking lot following the Squilchuck trail to the Mission Ridge Plateau around Lake Clara and through to the junction with Beehive Rd, from there we hiked to the old grade trail which once served as access to the lookout on top of Mission Peak 6876′ on the way passing Thea lake and discovering a tarn nestled back in the undulating basalt piles. Great colors though views were limited. We knew we had a short weather window that day and made the 11.2 mile, 3000′ of gain in and out trip without any inclement weather.
