Hardy Ridge is on the Washington side of the gorge and should have many wildflowers right now. If the weather cooperates we should also have great views of the gorge and many of the surrounding peaks. We will be traveling at a somewhat slower pace taking time for pictures and breaks. This loop hike is about 10 miles with 2200' elevation. Everyone should have their ten essentials and wear no cotton. The return trail is steep and rocky in places so poles are mandatory. There is very little water on this trail, you should bring extra as the weather could be a bit warm. Drivers will need a Washington discovery pass. Riders should bring 10$ for their drivers.
