Tatoosh Ridge


Day Hike - Tatoosh Peak

Tatoosh Peak is a 10.4 round trip hike with a 4,100 foot elevation gain. The former lookout site provides a great territorial view of Mt. Rainier and mountains in the Tatoosh Range as well as Mt St Helens and Mt Adams. Fall colors above the treeline will be spectacular. This will be a mentored hike for Jeff Crawford and all questions should be directed to him. His email is jcrawford27@yahoo.com
