Hike 8/19 Tonga Ridge

5 miles, 500 feet elevation gain.

Trip description

This is a long-time favorite hike for the "creaky knees" folks who like to be in the high country, but aren't up for hiking all the way from the bottom of the mountains. Thankfully, the forest road climbs over 3000 feet up from the Foss River Valley, so the van will do most of the hard work. When we hit the trail, we slowly transition from enclosed forest to ever-widening openings, with areas of flower meadows and views, as we gently work our way higher on the mountainside. Note that we aren't planning to hike the steep side trail up Mount Sawyer. We're keeping this one easier.

  • 75 US dollars
  • Meet at Everett Station Park & Ride Lot A. Look for large white passenger van.
