  • Very Strenuous
  • Challenging
  • Mileage: 9.0 mi
  • Elevation Gain: 3,400 ft


LEADER PERMISSION REQUIRED. Challenging, rugged hike starting near Bonneville Dam. Very steep, rocky slope. You must be comfortable with occasional moderate exposure.  Might be some poison oak and ticks in the area. Pace will be moderate.

This will be a very long day with a very early start from Olympia.  I will cancel this trip if it rained soon before or will rain the day of trip.
