11.5 miles of hiking • 4000' elevation gain •
A TFF was kind enough to show me the route over the head. Started at Timberline Lodge and had first lunch above Paradise Park and then we started over the rocky ridge back to Timberline above Mississippi Head. We made a quick detour down to the plane crash site and a view of the Zigzag Canyon, then headed up the mountain high enough to cross over back to Timberline Lodge. Twilight brought us back down to the Lodge and the end of an amazing day.
