  • Strenuous
  • Challenging
  • Mileage: 12.0 mi
  • Elevation Gain: 3,200 ft
  • Pace: 2.0-3.0 mph

This will be a longer trip so an overnight  Friday night can be an option.  I have an Airbnb reserved but with some limits to space.   If staying overnight isn't feasible a meetup (without the leader) for the 1st Edmonds to Kingston ferry (6:10) can be arranged.    

This should be an unforgettable hike at the peak wildflower season along 2 different amazing ridges in the Olympics.
