This hike has spectacular views and weather will be great so let's enjoy it. This is probably the last chance this year to go on this hike because very soon everything will be covered by snow. Pace will be moderate to slow with short brakes. There will be two 9 years old boys on this hike. This hike is not for conditioning but more for going steadily and enjoying the views. It will be long day since we have to drive about 2.5 hours each way. Please bring a lot of water and enough food for the whole day. Weather will be mostly sunny but still cold (high 46F) so bring warm layered clothes, a jacket, a hat and gloves. Cotton clothes are definitely not acceptable for this hike because the temperature will be below 50F so there is a risk of hypothermia. Northwest Forest Pass is required at the trailhead.
