10 miles of hiking • 750' elevation gain • 1 night
Our original plan was to catch some stars at Trillium Lake, but a traffic fatality by Rhododendron changed our plans. Since we were night hiking, we chose the route from the closed bridge to the Sandy crossing on the Ramona Falls trail and spent the night off the trail. Micro spikes would have helped, but we left them in the car. This Is a perfect reason to have maps. We were able to figure out Plan B with them.
