Loch Katrine and the ridge above
I parked at the intersection of Road 29200 and the North Fork County Road and hiked up Road 29200. Soon after crossing a concrete bridge I went left (to the right is Lake Philippa). My Green Trails and USGS maps both show the left fork of the road as a dead-end, but it connects up to the logging road that leads to Loch Katrine. The road gets occasional views of Little Phelps and Mount Phelps before it reaches the lake. After passing Loch Katrine the road opens up more and the views slowly expand to include Goat Mountain, Bare Mountain, Lennox Mountain, and a couple bird's eye views of Loch Katrine. The road ends on a sharp ridge that leads to Twin Peaks, at the end of the road there is a lunch spot on a local high point of the ridge with 360 degree views.
