Kachess–Domerie Loop


Day Hike - Kachess–Domerie Loop

Long ridge ramble.

  • Strenuous
  • Challenging
  • Mileage: 12.8 mi
  • Elevation Gain: 4,000 ft
  • Pace: Moderate

0700 at the trailhead.

Long loop trip along the ridge between Kachess and Cle Elum lakes.  Early start for a long day.  Lots of up and down and lots of great views. The section between the Easton Ridge trail and Para Point is quite steep, so we will be going up it, not down, thus this trip will be done counterclockwise.

This is a Phase 2 trip.
