  • Very Strenuous
  • Challenging
  • Mileage: 15.0 mi
  • Elevation Gain: 5,000 ft

Will meet at 7:30am at the Leavenworth Starbucks for last chance at restrooms before caravaning to the trailheads to setup the car shuttle.

One way traverse using 4th of July Creek trail on ascent, and with descent using the icicle ridge trail to the trailhead close to town. Attendees need to have extremely good conditioning with recent trips owing to the long distance (~15 miles) and elevation gain (~5000').
