  • Technical 2, Strenuous 5
  • Challenging
  • Mileage: 15.0 mi
  • Elevation Gain: 5,800 ft
  • High Point Elevation: 6,260 ft
  • Pace: moderate to fast

06:45 @ Beverly CG near the exit and restrooms. It's okay to park on the road across from the CG with a NW Forest Pass or equivalent. We will leave at least one vehicle there and carpool to DeRoux CG. The scramble concludes at Beverly CG so we'll have to fetch the vehicles from DeRoux. 

Mostly on trail but still a lot of mileage, and lots of snow this year which hopefully will be mostly melted out. 

I'm planning to camp at Beverly CG Sat and Sun nights if a spot is available. $8 per site per night. If none available, there are many (free) primitive campsites along the N Fork Road.
