Day Hike - Cleman Mountain–Hardy Canyon Loop


Day Hike - Cleman Mountain–Hardy Canyon Loop

14 miles, 3400', in the Wenas Wildlife area, up Hardy Canyon, along the Cleman Mt. Ridge, and down Woodcamp Ridge. There will be birds, flowers, and possibly wildlife.

  • Strenuous
  • Challenging
  • Mileage: 14.0 mi
  • Elevation Gain: 3,400 ft
  • Pace: 1.75-2 MPH

9:00 on Wenas Road 100 feet east of Black Canyon Road, on the turnoff to the south, use Google maps and this link or these coordinates   46.833517, -120.711889

 One carpooling option is 6:45 at East Sunset Way Trailhead in Issaquah. I need a ride and at least 1 person willing to drive and to stop here. Use google maps and this link

I haven't been on any of our route  I have no idea what we will see, it's an adventure for me. It's almost entirely a loop with varied terrain and ecosystems at a good time of the year for flowers. There could be ticks and rattlesnakes.
