Easton Ridge

6.16 miles of hiking • 2250' elevation gain •

The majority of the elevation gain is within the first mile and a half. After that it's a nice up and down ridge hike until your reach the trails end. Nice views of the Stuart Range, Lake Kachess, Lake Easton and Cle Elum Lake from the ridge.

South Point Lookout

6.78 miles of hiking • 3000' elevation gain •

Trail became entirely snow covered at 5300' and that is where I donned the micro spikes. I got as far as 6000' before I had to bail a couple of 100' from the summit due to unstable snow conditions. Probably could have made it to the top if I had brought crampons and an ice axe. Oh well, live and learn. Nice views though of the Goat Rocks, Mt. Adams and Mt. Hood from the summit saddle.

Mt. Baldy

8 miles of hiking • 3250' elevation gain •

Headed over to the east side of the pass off of I-90 to try to escape the Juneuary weather predicted for the weekend. Mostly were successful. I have never hiked this trail and it was fairly steep with a short section where you climb 1500' in one mile. Once to the top of the ridge you can see Baldy to the east and from there it is a nice up and down ridge hike to the summit. Very nice views of the Alpine Lakes Wilderness from the ridgeline and summit.

ONP--Deer Park & Blue Mtn.

12 miles of hiking • 3750' elevation gain • 1 night

This is one of my favorite spring time overnighters. The road to the Deer Park Campground remains closed so no car campers were present. It was quite nice having the campground to ourselves...….along with the 1/2 dozen curious deer.

Mt. Rose

5.87 miles of hiking • 3750' elevation gain •

Was planning on climbing Mt. Ellinor but the road to the TH is gated approx. 5 miles from the lower TH so decided to hike Mt. Rose instead There is still a bit of snow approx. 1/4 past the horse camp but the final climb to the summit is snow free.

Palisades

8.96 miles of hiking • 2250' elevation gain •

I have not hiked this one in sometime and forgot how cool the first couple miles are. One hikes up a steep mossy valley with old growth Douglas Firs clinging to the rocky cliffs, with a roaring creek and a water fall thrown in for good measure. I frequently find it amazing the places where trees can grow. Hiked a bit past the 2nd view point.

Mt. Townsend

9.2 miles of hiking • 3250' elevation gain •

Parked about a mile from the upper TH due to snow remaining on the roadway. There are varying routes and boot paths to the summit so this time of year its a good idea to have a GPS to refer to. Glissade a fair distance down the mountain on the descent.

Big Creek

8.39 miles of hiking • 2250' elevation gain •

Hiked from the Big Creek TH up to the Mt. Ellinor lower TH. Zero snow on the trail but the lower TH parking area still has snow. It is drivable if you have the right vehicle..... which was evident by the 3 high clearance SUV's parked there.

Elbo Creek Trail to Buck Mountain

9.21 miles of hiking • 3000' elevation gain •

Elbo Creek Trail is snow free all the way to the forest service road. Once you hit the road the snow was pretty much present most of the way to the 3700' summit of Buck Mtn. I used snow shoes but my partner just booted his way up to the top. No views from the summit....was cold, windy and foggy.

Copper Creek Canyon

5.56 miles of hiking • 2500' elevation gain •

Compared to nearby Mt. Rose and Mt. Ellinor this is a less hiked trail, probably due to its steepness and limited views. The first mile, to mile and 1/2, is really pretty awesome if you like big trees, lotsa moss and a crashing, roaring creek. It feels like you are traveling within a forest from Lord of the Rings.... with towering moss covered rocks/trees and some of the largest old growth cedar and Douglas fir trees in the Skokomish Valley. Snow began at around the 1.5 mile mark and from there it took a bit of route finding & trail breaking to get to the ridge which is at 3200'.
