Last Minute ANGELS REST--HEADLAMPS REQUIRED

Last minute easy hike…ANGELS REST—Bring your headlamp.

TOTAL MILES: 5.0 miles
ELEVATION GAIN: 1550 ft
PACE: “Quick” (~2.5 mph)
DIFFICULTY RATING: Moderate
ESTIMATED HIKING TIME: 2.5 – 3 hours
PERMITS: NW Forest Pass

CARPOOLING: RT mileage is 40 miles, give or take; we suggest a mileage donation of 10 cents/mile/person, or $4.00. Exact change makes it easier to divide among our drivers. No one will be turned away for an inability to contribute. Thanks!

I was driving to work this morning and decided it was time for a quick, short, fairly easy mid week hike…so why not Angels Rest. Sunset is a bit after 8:00 PM and the moon should be bright…it’s going to be a hot day so if you don’t have anything to do other than water the tomatoes grab a headlamp and your water and maybe a little snack and join me! WE WILL PROBABLY BE DECENDING AFTER SUNSET SO A HEADLAMP OR GOOD FLASHLIGHT IS REQUIRED. We will spend a short amount of time on top before descending but I hope to get back into town in decent time.

Please note that there is a MANUAL waiting list for this hike. What this means is that if a spot opens up everyone on the waiting list will automatically receive an e-mail notifying them of the opening. The first person (whether on the waiting list or not) to RSVP gets the spot.

NO DOGS, please.

What to bring:
HEAD LAMP (REQUIRED)…
• Sturdy hiking boots/shoes with at least one change of socks
• Two or three light layers of clothing that can be adjusted or removed as necessary (NO COTTON!!!)
• Rain gear
• Safety whistle, preferably on a cord around your neck (highly recommended)
• The 10 essentials*
• Trekking poles (never a bad idea)
• Lunch, snacks and plenty of water

*Navigation, Sun protection, Insulation, Illumination, First Aid, Fire, Repair Kit/Tools, Nutrition, Hydration, Emergency Shelter. For a more detailed description, check out “The Ten Essentials” on the Portland Hiking Meetup Group’s FILES page.

    My Cocker Spaniel Rigby and I will see you all up there as we are leaving for Angel's Rest a little earlier. Look for a small (20 lb) white dog with black spots and long wavy spaniel ears. He will likely come up and say "hi" anyways.
