    Route Description for Stewart and Alamea Loop Trail

    Leading you through verdant forests, lush meadowlands, grassy headlands, and along beautiful lakes, this route packs a punch! As you will be traveling over various terrain types obstructed with roots and rocks, we encourage you to wear a sturdy pair of footwear! Due to the proximity to the coast, expect windy and foggy conditions—so dress in layers! If you see elk along this route, be sure to give them plenty of space, as they can be aggressive creatures.

    Setting out from the trailhead, the Stewart and Alamea Loop Trail follows the Stewart Trail. This winding path follows a wide route, gradually climbing through woodlands and meadowlands. Take some time to enjoy the tranquility this trail boasts and you will eventually reach a saddle near Firtop. Here, you will encounter a confusing intersection. Continue along the Stewart Trail to the southwest all the way down to the Wildcat Campground. From here, merge onto the Coast Trail and follow it southeast past Wildcat Lake, before diverting north onto the Old Out Route.

    At the next junction, veer right onto the Alamea Trail back to the intersection at Firtop. At this point, reconnect with the rightmost Stewart Trail and retrace your footing along the path to return to the trailhead.
