8.85 miles of hiking • 3000' elevation gain •
Started the hike on the Tunnel Creek TH which follows the south fork of Tunnel Creek. At around 2 1/2 miles you reach the Tunnel Creek Shelter and from there the climbing steepens. After climbing approx. 1000 vertical feet you will reach Harrison Lake and get your first glimpse of Valhalla Peak. A 1/2 mile past the lake you reach 5050' Pass where there are nice peek-a view views of Mt. Constance. From there the "official" trail ends but there is a well defined boot path to Valhalla's 5300' summit.
