CHS 2 Hike - Tatoosh Lookout

Field trip: Conditioning Hiking Series

CHS 2 Hike - Tatoosh Lookout

CHS hike led at a CHS 2 pace (2.0-3.0 mph)

  • Strenuous
  • Challenging
  • Mileage: 12.4 mi
  • Elevation Gain: 4,100 ft

We will be meeting at the trailhead (directions to be emailed) at 8:30am.  I will be camping over the night before.

This trail is 10.4 miles long with a couple of side trails to a lake and to the peak, which should add on another couple of miles.   We will be starting at the north side, at about 2,900 feet, and working our way south to come out at just over 2,300 feet.  The ridges look beautiful from the photos I have seen, and our elevation should be in the shade of the trees.  This is a hike I have had on my to-do list for quite a while, and I am really looking forward to seeing it!
