Length: 6.5 mi • Est. 4 h 55 m
Note: As of August 24th, 2020, Forest Roads 24 & 2451 to Lake Cushman are closed to pedestrians & motor vehicles for the safety and health of the public. However the portion of Forest Road 24 leading to the Mt. Ellinor turn off is still open to the public. Read more here: https://www.fs.usda.gov/alerts/olympic/alerts-notices/?aid=61068 The first half of the hike through the woods is pretty tame with a gradual ascent - not too steep but not too easy. When you break out of the woods into the open it begins to get challenging. The rest of the way to the summit is very steep and technical rivaling if not surpassing Mailbox or Si in difficulty, lots of great views to the top from the tree line.Show more
