  • Moderate/Strenuous

  • Elevation Gain: 2,650 ft
7:30 AM at Preston P&R
A little more distance and gain than the stats indicate - we'll start with a quick loop of Franklin Falls and Wagon Road Trails so the co-leaders (me and Steve Payne) can show off their handiwork on recent work parties with Washington Trails Association. Then it's up, past Denny Creek and two waterfalls to Hemlock Pass, then descending to our lunch spot at Melakwa Lake.
