20 miles of hiking • 5500' elevation gain •
Started Eagle Creek TH @ 6am. Hiked to 4 1/2 mile bridge, then turned right and went up a ridge to the Tanner Butte trail, covering 3.5 miles of off trail ridge in 5.5 hours. Sketchy climbing, game trails, and lots of brush. Once we regained the trail, we scampered up to Tanner Butte and had chilled wine on the summit (not kidding), then hoofed it back down to the cars by 6pm.
