First run since the early 90’s...jump right in I say. Definitely worth it.

Just did this trail this morning, it’s tough! Definitely recommend wearing cleated type shoes or boots, jeans some parts of the trail or covered with bush. Bring plenty of water and prepare for an uphill battle. Once you get to the top it’s definitely worth the views, peace and serenity.

We started at the Marsh Creek Road Parking Lot, hiked up to the Three Spring Road. We turned left to the East Trail, then took the Mt. Olympia Road and the North Peak Road hiked up the the North Peak. After taking a lunch break we hiked down from North Peak Road, continued to the Prospector's Gap Road, turned right onto the Middle Trail, continued to the Falls Trail, Olympia Trail and the Three Spring Road to complete the loop. Total distance was 10.6 miles, elevation gain 3,600 ft. We got a good work out and the views were gorgeous. The weather was perfect at this time of year. We started a 9:30 and completed at 3:30.
