CHS hike led at a CHS 1 pace (1.5-2.0 mph)

  • Moderate
  • Moderate
  • Mileage: 8.0 mi
  • Elevation Gain: 2,300 ft

We'll meet at the Brickyard Park and Ride, Bothell at 8:00.  Drive 1.5hrs to the Beckler Trailhead.

Our hike should take about 5.5 hrs. Starting at 10:00, ending around 3:30pm which should put us back at the Park and Ride around 5:00pm.


As of May 25th, the last trip report made on May 19th reported snow at the summit. I'm banking on most of it being gone by June 11th; never the less, for now, gaiters and micro-spikes will be required are recommended. This could change if conditions improve. I'll provide and update in my "Hello Hiker" email which registered hikers will receive a couple of days before  

Here's a link to the WTA Beckler Peak description.
