    What a nice hike. It was not as steep as I anticipated, so I enjoyed it very much. Beautiful views and great company.

    Great hike and even better company. My poor car, however, is brown, not grey. Car wash badly needed.
    Thanks Maureen for suggesting this hike.

    good weather and no rain and blue ski most of the time. It was humid though. Everyone made it to the top and the look out.

    Change of plans. I won't be able to go today. I'm concerned about my back being it such a steep incline. Sorry.

    The info says the trail is 1.8 mi w 15-20% elevation gain. I'm not in the best shape & wondering if it's an easy, moderate, or difficult hike. Are the people going go-getters & jam up the hill or is it a leisurely hike? Not sure if I can keep up, but would love to go since I've never been to Olympic Nat'l Forest.

      Some of our folks are true hikers and "RUN" up the trail. But others, like me, do it slow and easy. Come join us.

    I'm setting the date aside, but will need more details re Mt Zion. It seems to be one of the trails I haven't hiked.
