Marmot Pass/Buckhorn Mtn

  • I-5/Martin Way Park and Ride

    Park and Ride , Lacey, WA (map)

    47.034264 -122.823189

  • 12.6 mi.rt., 4400' gain. This hike starts out on the Upper Big Quilcene River Trail No. 833, with a mostly moderate grade for the 5.3 mi./3500' gain to Marmot Pass at 6000 feet. We will set a moderate pace to enjoy the old growth forests, open meadows, and spectacular views of Iron and Buckhorn Mountain as well as Hood Canal, Puget Sound and the Cascades. With good weather, we will hike the steeper, rough, open path above the pass for a 1 mi. /900' + gain and scramble to the top of Buckhorn Mountain for more great views. Plan on about 13 miles RT.
    If the weather is bad, I'll do a lower elevation, shorter hike so we can still get out. Or, we may have to skip Buckhorn depending on weather.

    This trip is also listed with the Mountaineers as a hike.

    Nancy,

    For future reference - it is a lot more convenient for those of us on the west side to meet at a place like the Mud Bay Park & Ride or Top Foods when going to the Olympics than driving all the way over to the Martin Way P & R and then driving back to the west side. Consequently we usually use one of these two places when going west into the Olympics. You might want to use one of these locations as the meet-up spot in the future when going west.

    Thanks for leading this outing.

    See you Saturday!

    Ken
