Forest Road Hike

Hike Distance: 9.1 miles      Yearly Hike Distance: 627.9 miles

Elevation Gain: 2094 feet      Yearly Elevation Gain: 82521 feet

We weren’t sure if we would hit snow but found out quickly that there was quite a bit of snow still left at the lower elevations.  We stopped when the snow depth exceeded one foot, but could have gone on if we wanted.  We decided to turn around and were able to make a loop hike out of this.

We had some really nice views of the surrounding mountains and also saw Mt. St. Helens and the Toutle River Valley below.  I didn’t expect the elevation gain to go over 2000 feet as it didn’t seem like we ascended that much.  We had a wonderful day and will definitely come back!
