  • Strenuous

  • Mileage: 8.6 mi
  • Elevation Gain: 3,875 ft
  • High Point Elevation: 5,760 ft
  • Pace: 1000 ft/hr

Meet at the trailhead at 9AM. I will send out information on who is coming from which areas a few days before the hike so everyone can arrange carpools.

I usually stop for dinner on the way home, and love for everyone to join me. We will want to consider who plans to have a meal afterwards when we arrange carpools.

  • This will be a strenous hike but at a social/moderate pace. I usually plan for 1000 feet per hour, maybe a little faster or a little slower depending on the abilities of the group.
  • Drivers will need a Northwest Forest pass or America the Beautiful pass. This trailhead is on Mountain Loop Hwy, which is unfortunately notorious for break ins. Drivers will want to make sure their cars are emptied of valuables.
  • This mountain is also a very popular bear hangout in the fall. Hopefully we will see a few, but be prepared to add a little time to the trip if any of them are munching berries on the trail!
  • I am requiring leader permission for this hike due to the difficulty level.
