With a perfect view of Jefferson, a beautiful lake, a huge waterfall, and rock pinnacles to explore, this long distance steep elevation hike promises to be an explorer’s delight. We’ll start at the Tumble Trailhead at Detroit Lake and hike all the way up to Dome Rock, with the remains of a lookout tower and great views of the high Cascades. After that we’ll drop down steeply to Tumble Lake, in deep forest and ringed by a fascinating collection of rock pinnacles. We’ll have lunch, and then go check out the top of Tumble Falls, one of the largest waterfalls in this part of the Cascades. Plan on a full day of high adventure. We will likely stop at Giovanni’s Mountain Pizza in Mill City on the way home. Exploratory. Meeting site to be determined. Hike: 14.8 miles out and back. 4,200 feet EG. Dr. 200.
