This is a one day scramble up Index - you've seen it from the road, maybe even hiked up to Lake Serene - here's your chance to make it to the top in one long day. Come with mountain bike ready, helmut and energy. We will park at the gate on FS 62, which is about 7 miles up the road at about 1600’. We will ride/walk mountain bikes for about 6.6 miles to about 2600’ on FS 6240. We will stash the bikes and continue walking FS 6240 for about 2 miles to about 4000’. Then we will begin the scramble portion to the summit, which is about 1.5 miles. The trip will take about 12 hours. Because of this approach we expect to gain 5,000 ft elevation & 20 miles in overall trip distance.
