Crazy nice weather in February !
Part of the six peaks trail
Burning off turkey day calories!
Part of the five peaks loop. 18 miles, 6000' and a 50# pack, long day!
What Shad said! Fun day
We (ScottyP) had an early start outside of park at 6 AM. Started on Mitchell Canyon Road instead of the Trail by mistake. Unfortunately, missed the first summit on Eagle Pk. However, we regrouped and conquered the other three summits. Finished at 18 miles 8.5 hrs and 5K ft. elevation gain. I'd like to try it going clockwise as Olympia Pk. is my favorite. Found signs of wild boar but saw no wildlife.
Very challenging. Due to wrong turns was 17.8 miles and took about 7:30. Weather was overcast with mist, but still drank over 4 liters of water. Great time!
I enjoyed this challenge very much. Lost the map early on. Lost my way more than once. Bushwhacked poison oak. Hot. Didn't pack enough water. But still, lots of fun.
Opted for direct (ridge) connection between North Peak and Olympia. Not as bad as described.
