    Directions to Trailhead

    Indian Heaven is a gorgeous region for a hike, with carpets of wildflowers, plenty of lakes, and mountains. The Indian Heaven Trail #33 takes you from Cultus Creek Campground to four lakes near the base of Bird Mountain. It’s a nice hike if you’re staying at the campground, but we also recommend it for a day trip. There are lots of trails that can be used to extend your adventure if you want.

    Route Description for Indian Heaven Trail #33

    Indian Heaven is an ideal place to spend a day hiking. With mountains, countless lakes, and more wildflowers than you could ever imagine, it offers lots to see. The Indian Heaven Trail #33 runs from Cultus Creek Campground past four lakes. You can extend this hike using the connecting trails if you’d like.

    Beware, Indian Heaven is full of bugs in the summertime. You’ll need every protection you can get against the mosquitoes and horseflies. We recommend a hike in later summer to avoid the bugs.

    Beginning from the campground, begin hiking up the basin wall, taking a few switchbacks to skirt underneath Bird Mountain. You’ll pass Cultus Lake and Deep Lake. Stay right after Cultus to Pass Clear Lake and Deer Lake. The hike ends next to Deer Lake, so turn around and retrace your steps.
