  • Mileage: 5.6 mi

  • Pace: 2 mph or slower, stopping frequently to take photos

Meet at the Sunrise Visitor Center (outside near the entrance)  by 7:30 AM. We will depart promptly at 7:40 AM.

We will be hiking part or all of the trail at a leisurely place and will be stopping often to take photos of the wildflowers. The goal is to get good photos, not to complete the trail in a given time limit. We will eat lunch (be sure to pack one) at noon, then turn back around (if we're not at the lookout by then) . You MUST have your 10 essentials!

Optional Camping:
I have secured a double camp site at Silver Creek Campground for Friday, July 6th. My cost was $60, so depending on how many camp will determine the individual cost to you. The site numbers are 9 & 10 (down by the river).

Please let me know if you plan to camp.

You will need  either a Northwest Forest Pass or a  one of the National Parks annual passes.
