Marmot Pass/Buckhorn Mountain (S, VS) (CC Buckhorn Wilderness, Green Trails Tyler Peak #136) 12.6 mi.rt., 4400' gain. This hike starts out on the Upper Big Quilcene River Trail No. 833.1, with a mostly moderate grade for the 5.3 mi./3500' gain to Marmot Pass at 6000 feet. We will set a moderate pace to enjoy the old growth forests, open meadows, and spectacular views of Iron and Buckhorn Mountain as well as Hood Canal, Puget Sound and the Cascades. With good weather, we will hike the steeper, rough, open path above the pass for a 1 mi. /900' + gain to the top of Buckhorn Mountain for more great views.
