In less than 5 mi is another saddle with two more trails taking off for the Trapper Creek TH several miles away; pass Trail 132B on the right, then you fork right at the next nearby juncture (opposite Trail 132) on signed Observation Peak Trail 132A for 5 mi SE with wildflowers to the old lookout site.
