  • Moderate
  • Mileage: 16.0 mi
  • Elevation Gain: 3,900 ft

We'll carpool.

We'll do it at a leisurely pace, so most any backpacker should be able to do it. Lots of elevation gain by backpacking standards but it's twice the distance of Mount Si while the same elevation gain, so mostly moderately inclined.

The leader has a pass for 6 people.
