Mount Zion


Day Hike - Mount Zion

Join us for a Friday hike in search of wild rhododendrons in bloom. We will hike up the switch-backs of a steep trail at 1.0 - 1.5 miles an hour under canopies of fir, hemlock and rhododendrons. At the top, we will follow a spur to views of Mt. Townsend and the Olympics.

  • Easy/Moderate

Participants will be sent an email detailing meeting place and time two days before the hike.  

Be sure to carry clothing for the always changing mountain climate:  layers and rain gear.  

We will stop at the top for lunch at the top to enjoy the views.  

There is a privy at the trailhead.
