Nov 29 Sat. - Mt. Rose (S) 6.4 mi. rt. Gain 3,500 ft. (USGS Mt. Steel) Work off those holiday vices and tone up for snow fun as you switchback up a steep trail through the tall trees. Breaks for views of Lk Cushman, nearby peaks and a waterfall. Down will also get you a workout on this trail. Early snow may move us to a different trail in the Olympics. Sign up on line or contact Eric Quinn at or 360-556-4969. !!!Please Note!!! FR 24 is gated almost 1.4 miles before the usual trailhead. New overall stats should be 7.6 mi. rt. and 3760 gain. I scouted the road walk last week. It is a pleasant warm up with seasonal waterfalls and views of Lake Cushman. Expect a challenging day! Intense storms on the day of the hike or unexpected trail damage could cause a change in plans.
