    Directions to Trailhead

    The Hummingbird Plume Lookout trail is a beautiful half to full-day hike that has many options to extend and visit nearby landmarks. It passes by Troll Falls early on and follows the Skogan Pass trail before branching off to the lookout. There is a fair amount of elevation gain, but it is worth it for the view.
