20 miles of hiking • 4750' elevation gain •

One of my favorite loops! Up to Larch Mountain from Multnomah Falls, entirely on the LMT. Then, looping back along the south rim of the crater on the Oneonta trail, until it connects with Franklin Ridge. From there, take the "bat cave" junction down to Nesika, for a second lunch opportunity at Bickel Point. Wasn't close to dark yet, so I wandered around and found both the old car and its engine, before heading back down the LMT to MF again. As good as a day in the woods can get! :-)
