bellinghamclimbergreat January traverse  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jan 19, 2014


This was a great winter conditioner- no snow, and it felt like a summer day up there. Combined with Elk Mt, it made for a solid 5 hour tromp.

Kamzikfirst hot day of 2011  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 4, 2011


Had some time on Saturday so went for a hike to my favorite trail.
up 48min 30 sec.
down 27 min
I shouldn't rushed since I haven't hiked for about 10 months but daylight was closing on me so I had no choice.
wearing five fingers made my entire leg work extremely hard which resulted in an extreme soar 3 days later. Feet and knees felt great tho.
Since this is only 60 minute car ride for me from home to trail I like to do this hike 2-3 times a year on the nice day to enjoy the reward on top.I take all out of town guests on this hike to show what Oregon has to offer in it's northwest corner.

Steep, but well worth the effort. The wildflowers were in bloom, the sky was clear, and the temperature was mild... all in all, a perfect day!

ZephFirst Time Up  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Mar 29, 2009


Great hike! There was about 2" of snow from about 1600 feet until about 3000 feet, the last 200 feet had over a foot of snow. The hike is very green at the bottom, and the trail is extremely vertical with surprisingly few switchbacks. I will do this hike again.

LunadogFirst time  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Mar 21, 2009


Hiked up with my Dad. Lots of Mazamas working on the trails today and at the summit. They offered me Clif Bars and stuff but my Dad wouldn't let me have any. Was fun in the snow but my Dad was too slow. Hey, that rhymes!

LeviFirst Hike of the New Year  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jan 10, 2009


Started out with headlamps at 6:30. Forcast called for a good day turned out to be somewhat right. Made the summit with snow the whole way up, with trail easy to follow. Sun broke out when at the summit. Nice work out and hope for many more this year.

BCJRegular hike  Sucess!


I hike this every other week or so just to keep in shape. Great training hike for bigger things and a wonderful place to watch the sun set.

YEMElk/King Loop  Sucess!


I love the CAUTION sign on the stump as you skirt around the cliffs on the traverse from Elk Mountain. There's lots of good scrambling above this section of trail that's worthy of a return visit.

bmwboarder7Records?  Sucess!


My buddy and I were running short on time, but still wanted to get a good hike in. We ended up hiking Kings, which is good and steep. We then too the much smaller trail over to Elks Peak, at which point we had to run to get back in time. All in all, we ran a ton of the trail, and running down Elks was crazy and scary and fun. I was definitely sore from using my downhill muscles.

Date Climbed: Apr 14, 2007


A great day, doing the traverse from Elk to Kings. Started out beautiful with the sun out. At the top of Kings, it was snowing -just for a moment, then sunny again!

I Tagged Kings after tagging Elk. Weather was dry. No volcano views. If you've got nothing else going on, this is a great conditioning hike. Don't forget you trekking poles.

Mr. ClamThe best sunset ever  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 26, 2006

Mr. Clam

Left the car at 5:00 reached the summit of Kings Mountain Jr a little before 6:00 and hit the summit of Kings Mountain just in time for the sunset. It was so amazing I had to stay on top for close to an hour watching it. Then I had a nice descent under the stars.

BSPclimberKings Mtn. trail


Have ascended five times, once in 1987 and again in 1988 as part of the Elk-Kings traverse. Add another ascent, December 2006 with my son. Beautiful day, about 6" of snow at the summit. Add one more ascent via the west ridge April 2007. Still one more via Elk-Kings traverse May 2007.
