I forgot the camera today – too bad, since there is a nice view at the top – but I did bring the Garmin. Link to the track below.
I met Ken and Carl in the parking lot and the plan was to go to Tiger #1. I believe they did go on but I turned around at Poo Poo Point. This hike is a bit steeper than I thought and I want to save my legs for Saturday.
Anyway, a day off from work and a decent workout, it’s all good.
Rainy day hike with Carl, Ken, Greg and Mark. Fun group, challenging hike.
We started from the E Sunset Way lot and went up the usual route: connector trail to Puget Power, to Adventure, to High School to Section Line.
Where I usually go down via Nook Trail, we went up. And up. From that point, 1100 feet elevation (parking lot is about 50 feet) to the summit at 2550 it is a little more than a mile. The first .5 miles gains 800 feet. The trail is “unmaintained”.
We went down the same way. I didn’t bring my Garmin so I can only estimate about 8 miles, 3.5 hours, 2700 or so feet of elevation. Figuring that isn’t as easy as subtracting start from high point, since there are so many ups and downs along the way.
We did get pretty wet but it wasn’t too bad. Great workout!
