Mount Ellinor


Day Hike - Mount Ellinor

I call this the "Full Ellinor" since it starts way down low in the forest at Big Creek campground and goes all the way to the summit. Olympic and regional views and a great workout.

  • Strenuous
  • Challenging
  • Mileage: 12.0 mi
  • Elevation Gain: 5,000 ft
  • Pace: Moderate

0800 at Big Creek campground off of North Lake Cushman road (directions will be provided)

My goals for this trip are as follows:

1. Be safe.

2. Make it to the top of Ellinor.

3. Learn something.

My expectations for trip participants are as follows:

1. Good physical conditioning (5,000' of gain over 6 miles uphill)

2. Practice Leave No Trace principles

3. Be vaccinated.

4. Carry the 10 essentials.
