CHS 2 Hike

Field trip: Conditioning Hiking Series

CHS 2 Hike - Spray Park

MOUNT RAINIER NATIONAL PARK - MOWICH RAMBLE! Hike to Spray Falls, Spray Park, Eunice Lake, Tolmie Peak (and Lookout) on this fabulous ramble in the Mowich Lake area. CHS hike led at a CHS 2 pace (2.0-3.0 mph) -- PLEASE READ LEADER'S NOTES!!!

  • Moderate
  • Challenging
  • Mileage: 15.0 mi
  • Elevation Gain: 3,500 ft
  • Pace: 2.0-2.5


Please note that I'm on the slower side of CHS 2 leaders, but more than capable of keeping a 2.5 mph average moving speed. If your preferred pace is 2.5+ and you will get frustrated going any slower, please select another hike. It's important that we keep the group together as it's a long hike with several trail junctions, and it's likely to be a hot day. Plus I'll be celebrating my birthday -- you don't want to harsh my mellow! ;-)
