Angel's Rest-Devils Rest Lollipop Hike

Severt's 1st PHMG Qualifier: Angel's Rest-Devil's Rest Lollipop Hike.  This is Severt first qualifying hike to become a hike leader. My hats out to him, & with all the Confidence PHMG will be honored to have him as a leader.  Severt I know you will do great!!

TOTAL MILES: 10.9 miles

ELEVATION GAIN: 2770 ft

PACE: 2.5 mph

DIFFICULTY RATING: Moderate

ESTIMATED HIKING TIME: 4-5 hours

PERMITS: None required

CARPOOLING: RT mileage is 50 miles, give or take; we suggest a mileage donation of 10 cents/mile/person, or $5.00. Exact change makes it easier to divide among our drivers. No one will be turned away for an inability to contribute. Thanks!

Hike Description:

We will meet up at the Gateway Transit Center in the SE corner of the Tri-Met Park & Ride at 10:00 am, arrange carpooling, and drive out to the Angel's Rest trailhead located off exit 28 on I-84.

We begin by climbing up Angel's Rest Trail #415 to Angel's Rest, take a brief break to take in the spectacular view of the Columbia River Gorge and have a quick bite to eat, then continue on to Wahkeena Springs and the Devil's Rest trail junction. We will hike the Devil's Rest Trail #420C in a clockwise direction until it drops back down onto Angel's Rest where we'll continue back down the trail the way we came.

Once at the bottom, we'll admire the pretty lollipop shape our hike made on the GPS before heading back to Gateway!

      Well, I ended up with both anyway. This hike was the last of 2013 and then on the 1st I hosted the hike to Hardy Ridge so I still got both but not at the same time!

      Apparently I missed a good one. There's always next year (and I do not mean tomorrow).

    • Kris

    I'm coming from Nob Hill and wonder if anyone wants to carpool from this side. My car is big and inefficient for the long haul but let's throw it out there and see what options we can come up with...

    Hate to miss this, but needing to reprioritize my day.

    I like the notice I got that says "This Meetup is sold out". Wouldn't it be nice to get paid for going on a hike? Anyway, I'm glad to see all of you here and I'll cross my fingers for good weather!

    2 · December 24, 2013

    • Wendy R.

      Paid to hike without the risk of getting run over. I'd take that job!

  • Greg G.

    And I'll bring the candy canes!

    • Severt L.

      LOL - that's the first thing I wondered about when I saw that you were signed up for this!

    Yay! Traci is going.

    December 24, 2013

    • Traci

      Aww, thanks Ryan! Can't get too fat and lazy while I'm on vacation.

    10pm? Bring lights?

    • Severt L.

      Shana, it wasn't fixed but I just now went in and changed it so hopefully Meetup doesn't switch it back. I just now noticed that it is also saying we won't be back until 5 am the morning after so I'll go fix that now. :)

      December 24, 2013

    • Severt L.

      And don't be embarrassed, I've had the same result before. Might be hard to explain here but what happens is that if the "end" of the hike isn't set properly first then Meetup with automatically change the start time to make it physically possible as it won't allow an event to end before it starts. :)

    Some confusion here... both 10AM and 10PM is mentioned.
