Although the peak of the west lion is steep and rocky there is one absolutely perfect spot to camp right beside the peak rock. A semy sheltered patch of dirt big enough for the average sized tent makes a great place to camp. Me and a buddy camped it in late September of 2003. What a place to watch the sunset from.

old growth forest

The old growth forest growing in the higher reaches of the area is a mountain hemlock forest containing three different trees. The very common mountain hemlock, usually not to big but sometimes huge amabalis firs (balsam fir) and the beautiful sun bleached looking yellow cedars.
