This area focuses around a series of rock pinnacles each uniquely named from the imagination of past climbers; hence the name, Menagerie. The best known, and most popular is Rooster Rock. Mountaineers from around the Pacific Northwest use the spires and cliffs to hone their technical climbing skills. This is primarily a low elevation wilderness and can be used year-round.
A thick forest of second growth Douglas-fir, western hemlock, western red cedar dominate the area.
