Last Minute-ish Sunday "Run" at Mailbox

Hey Folks - if you still have some energy left after the trail work party on Saturday, why not join up for a "run" up Mailbox Peak on Sunday morning. Slow hike up, fast run down! If you haven't done it before, it's one of the toughest climbs in the area and has one of the best views in the Cascade foothills. It's short mileage again this week, but plan for a couple of hours due to the elevation gain. (And if you're hardcore and need some serious hill training, you can do a repeat!) They're predicting that the rain will be moved out of the area by then, so we should have some great views in the morning. Here's the WTA site with details on the trail:

    I am visiting Seattle this weekend and am planning on doing this hike on Saturday. I have read some trip reports stating that this hike takes 4.5-5 hours. Is that pretty accurate? I am a trail runner in fairly good shape and can run a sub 3:15 road marathon.

      took us 3hr 15 min. That's probably safe to aim for.

      Good luck! It's one of the local classics and if you have good weather you can't beat the view at the top!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
