Ira Spring & Putrid Pete's Peak Trails


Day Hike - Ira Spring & Putrid Pete's Peak Trails

We'll take the old Mason Lake bootpath up (new trail down that portion), continue to the traverse below Mt Defiance, and continue on past there to the bowl above Spider Lake where the fall colors should be very good (berry bushes, white rhododendrons, and white mountain ash!).

  • Strenuous
  • Challenging
  • Mileage: 13.0 mi
  • Elevation Gain: 4,300 ft
  • Pace: 1.75 MPH average moving speed

7:45 at the Ira Spring trailhead, use google maps and this link

1 Carpooling option is the East Sunset Way Trailhead (just off of I-90, exit 18) at 7:00. Here is the google maps link     I will need one person that is willing to drive to meet me there. I do not have a car; in the unlikely event that nobody is willing to do that, I will need to cancel the trip (I am triple-boosted and had Omicron BA5, my immunity couldn't be much stronger).
