Augspurger Mountain hike

It was my intention to do a double Dog in the 13th but it looks as if it's going to rain so let's do a regular hike instead. From reading the description it seems that the main thing this hike has going for it is that it's long with some good altitude gain. Not very scenic from the looks of it and a bit early for wild flowers which would have made it a bit nicer. Don't expect too much and you won't be disappointed.

 

Distance: 15 miles

Altitude gain: 4,400 feet

Difficulty rating: Difficult to Very Difficult. The on line sites are rating it Very Difficult but I have my doubts.

Gas: 100 miles rt; $10 for gas

Bring: Ten essentials, lunch, snacks, water, non-cotton clothing.

    Nice hike with Oregon weather- sun, rain, snow, hail, wind. We even got pelted with chunks of ice that came off the trees for a while.

    Final stats: 9.5 miles, 3,500 EG, average speed 2.0. Moving average a bit faster.

    Larch today made me rethink doing this one in this weather. :) I'll join you in one not so bearish.

    Anyone besides me on the Westside? If so anyone want to carpool from the Westside ? I'm in Hillsboro.
