  • Very Strenuous
  • Challenging
  • Mileage: 11.0 mi
  • Elevation Gain: 5,300 ft

Everett Station, Parking Lot A, Southwest corner, 7AM

This is an extremely challenging hike, involving more than one vertical mile in elevation gain and areas that are exposed. You should be in very good shape and be comfortable with exposure if you sign up. The pace will be on the slower side of moderate and the group will stay together. If you are not comfortable with this pace or staying with a group then please do not sign up. We will do this hike only if the weather is dry and there is no rain in the forecast. If the weather is not cooperating, we will hike Lost Creek Ridge to Round Lake (11 miles but only a 4300 foot elevation gain) instead. Riders should bring cash to help defray cost of driving. Plan on a post-hike meal at Olympic Pizza in the thriving metropolis of Granite Falls. Let me know if you have any questions or concerns.
