This hike is cross-posted with the Mt. Rainier group.
Since this is one of the few trails that are melted off, I wanted to get back up on the Mt. which I have missed.
Mileage: 4.8 mile loop
Elevation gain: 1300'
Rainier pass needed
We will begin this hike on th Trail of the Shadows and hike clockwise. Going this direction, gives us a better chance of some views. This trail is not the most scenic but a nice hike anyway.
Directions: Enter the Nisqually entrance to MRNP and park in the Longmire parking lot.
If you are coming from Oly/Lacy area, you might want to meet us at that lot. Please let me know so we can look for you or your car. I think we will be there at approx. 7:45-8AM
Please have your 10 essentials, cash for drivers, full tank of gas if driving, plastic bag for boots, extra shoes for ride home, sense of humor and adventure.
You are responsible for your own safety-the better prepared, the safer you will be. We are not guides. We are going for this hike and invite you to join us at your own risk.
