Hike Distance: 4.5 miles
Elevation Gain: 577 feet
We parked at the intersection of Pebble Creek Mainline Rd and Scappoose Vernonia Hwy, which is not part of the standard TH’s. It rained heavily during the entire hike and we had to end it prematurely due to water leaking into my shoes! I have been wearing low top non-waterproof hiking shoes because of my ankle issues and have no other option as this time. Although is rained heavily, it was wonderful to be out in the fresh air. I had hoped to make it to Vernonia Lake but maybe next time?
