Mount Ellinor & Mount Washington


Alpine Scramble - Mount Ellinor

We will be starting at the Mt. Rose Trailhead for a mini traverse via the early 1900s historical route to Mount Ellinor. This trip is listed as a scramble due to the off-trail travel portion to the upper trail of Mt. Ellinor. We will be following the upper/lower Ellinor trail to the Big Creek connector trail on our descent to the Big Creek Trailhead to complete the trip.
