The Douglas Trail follows Road 3626-255 for 0.4 miles resulting in two trailheads. The first, or eastern, trailhead leads up into the Huckleberry Mountain area including the McIntyre Ridge Trail #782, the Plaza Trail #783, the Bonanza Trail #786, and the Boulder Ridge Trail $783A. The western trailhead leads across to Eagle Creek, offering a great connection, especially for equestrians. It also junctions in less than 0.1 miles to a trail that heads up to Eagle Creek Butte. The Douglas Trail continues through the forest for 1.4 miles until it reaches the rough access road (Lee’s Ranch Road) to the Eagle Creek Trail. Following this trail downhill for approximately one mile leads to the Eagle Creek Trail.
From the eastern trailhead, the trail climbs in the forest one-half mile until a clear-cut is reached. It is best to check with the Zigzag Ranger District for current information regarding logging as the trail may be impassable. A year round stream, providing the only water on the trail, is located one mile from the trailhead. The trail then climbs until an active rock quarry is reached at 1.9 miles. Use caution crossing this area. There is a confusing spot her where a spur trail leads left to the former site of Douglas Camp. Head right to connect with the rest of the trail. A unique view of the area south across Eagle Creek to Old Baldy is found 0.1 miles further. The trail, now on the ridgetop, alternates between uphill and downhill.
At 3.1 miles, the junction with the McIntyre Ridge Trail is reached. The Douglas Trail then climbs via some short, rutted switchbacks for 0.2 miles to a short way-trail on the right. This leads to the rhododendron covered top of Wildcat Mountain, a former lookout site. Phenomenal views of Mt. Rainier, Mt. St. Helens, Mt. Hood and Mt. Jefferson abound.
