Hike Distance: 10.6 miles
Elevation Gain: 2330 feet
Another gorgeous day and a great hike to the summit of Hamilton. Mt. After summitting Hamilton I took the long way back to the equestrian TH by going to the backside of the park and then over Hardy Creek on the bridge. There was a great view of Mt. Adams and Mt. Hood along the trail to Hamilton. Mt. I saw most hikers (about 10) along the Hamilton Mt. saddle, otherwise the trail system was mostly empty.
