Let's go hike this seldom traveled area between Hood River and the Dalles.
Distance; 7.5 miles
Elevation gain; 1200 ft.
Please note; much of this hike is off trail and over some uneven terrain but there is little to no actual bush whacking.
CARPOOLING: RT mileage is 130 miles, give or take; we suggest a mileage donation of 10 cents/mile/person, or $13.00. Exact change makes it easier to divide among our drivers. No one will be turned away for an inability to contribute. What to bring: • Sturdy hiking boots/shoes • Two or three light layers of clothing that can be adjusted or removed as necessary (NO COTTON!!!) • Rain gear • Safety whistle, • The 10 essentials* • Headlamp or flashlight w/spare batteries • Lunch, snacks and plenty of water • Trekking poles (always a good idea) • Camera (optional) *Navigation, Sun protection, Insulation, Illumination, First Aid, Fire, Repair Kit/Tools, Nutrition, Hydration, Emergency Shelter. For a more detailed description, check out “The Ten Essentials” on the Portland Hiking Meetup Group’s FILES page.
