West Wind Pass

Click to view full map

West Wind Pass is a great short hike off the Spray Lakes trail.
It's a short but steep hike that goes directly up the drainage on an unofficial trail to reach the broad pass.
The very first section doesn't have much going on, but as you get higher, you get a great view back to the reservoir.
