Details

Don't know much about this this hike. It will be my first time up to Wauna Point but it looks like a fun little hike. The views on top should be good and from the looks of it we'll even have some nice weather. 68 degrees and partially sunny if predictions can be trusted.

Distance: 9.4 miles

Altitude gain: 3,380 feet

Difficulty: Moderate

Bring: Ten essentials, lunch, snacks, water, non cotton clothing, sturdy boots.

Snow situation: Odds are that we'll hit some snow towards the top but based on what we found at a slightly higher elevation at the Benson Plateau a couple of weeks ago it might not amount to much. I plan to bring micro spikes but it's not at all a requirement for other members. The hike is in and out so if we do get in to gnarly conditions we can cut the hike short and turn around early. My aim will be to keep the hike moderate as opposed to difficult but I can't fully be trusted with my difficulty ratings.
