  • Moderate
  • Mileage: 7.5 mi
  • Elevation Gain: 2,000 ft

8:00am at the trailhead, ready to start hiking.

We will hike the eastern ridge up to Hex, which starts from FS 4305.

Social distancing and no carpooling.  Bring hand sanitizer and a buff or mask. I am hoping this route will be less busy than the standard route up Hex. Possible Bitterroot and other flowers.
