Total Miles: 25
Elevation Gain: 5300
Pace: 2.5 mph
Difficulty Rating: Very Difficult
Estimated Hiking Time: 12 hours
Permits: NW Forest Pass for drivers
Dogs: No dogs on this one.
CARPOOLING: RT mileage is 70 miles, give or take; suggest a mileage donation $7.00 per person. Exact change makes it easier to divide among our drivers. No one will be turned away for an inability to contribute. Thanks!
We will be staying together as a group on this hike.
25 miles, 5300 ft elev gain. So the way this is going to work is you will RSVP that you want a spot, I will be selecting the people to go on this hike and you will get email notification if you are selected. If I have not hiked with you before, I will check with hike leaders you have hiked with, and potentially you will get a email from me with questions to answer.
June 21st is Summer Solstice, what better way to spend the long daylight hours than on a long hike that very few people have accomplished.
On this hike we will be avoiding the side trails and just keeping a steady pace in order to accomplish the goal for the day, completion of the Eagle Tanner Super Loop.
Starting at Eagle creek trail 440 then connecting with Eagle Tanner trail 433, then Tanner Butte trail 401, then its a few connector trails back to the cars. Additional details will be emailed to those on the hike.
Again that is 25 miles in one day, 5300 ft elev gain, VERY DIFFICULT.
What to bring:
Sturdy hiking boots/shoes with at least one change of socks.
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).
