Picked this one after a long New Years Eve, needed something easy for everyone. I brought a rope just in case the washout "mini trail" was really bad but it was still in good shape. Also, it wouldn't be that difficult to drop down a few hundred feet, cross over, then reclimb back up. http://www.willhiteweb.com/olympic_mountains/pyramid_mountain_trail/lake_crescent_362.htm
Nice forest and some views on top. This would be a good offseason peak when it the washout is dry. I'm surprised the NPS doesn't build a more long-term detour for the trail. Perhaps they feel the slope is not stabilized yet and a trail above or below could be wiped out anyway.
This is a great trail... except for the landslide traverse. Some workers had "repaired" the path through the traverse earlier during the year, but it is only a matter of time before Mother Nature completely reclaims the slope. Paul and I were able to walk across the traverse, while Kevin had to use his hands. The views from the summit cabin are great to the east and south.
