Climbing Conditioner - Mount Walker

A proper conditioner! Average of 30lb packs. One fine day that felt more like April.

  • Road suitable for all vehicles
  • Trail was completely dry. Pretty even between 2 legged and 4 legged walkers. The view from the North summit was the same as if you poked a hole in a ping pong ball and peered inside. El Niño will hopefully disappear soon!

My drive from Port Townsend to the Mount Walker closed entry gate is not worth mentioning. All roads leading here are shipshape. The Mount Walker trail itself is in excellent condition. Looking forward to the Rhodys blooming later on in the spring. Our steady pace with the 30lbs or so took us an hour and 10 minutes. Some of us did a second lap taking about an hour and 20 minutes. So total of 8 miles and 4000' elevation gain on a nice dry day in February.
