Hike - Strenuous
Description:
This hike will go out of the normal IATC country as we drive 25 miles east on I-90 to our trailhead near Olallie State Park. We will hike up the Zig Zag Trail, at times steep and narrow volunteer built trail, which climbs above the Hall Creek Valley to a view overlooking Hall Point to our west. We then will continue upward on an abandoned logging road along the west slope of the Hall-Mine Divide. Final destination will be dependent on the condition of the upper road/trail. We hope to reach viewpoints and logging artifacts. The map for the day is the Green Trails Bandera #206. The email address for any other information is hiker99ralph@comcast.net or on the morning of the hike call.
