Olympic Peninsula. This trail begins in an old growth fir forest, dotted with wonderful blobs of pink early in the summer, when rhododendrons are full in bloom. This is in the Buckhorn wilderness, so we will remove downed trees using crosscut saws. When we finish removing all of the logs, we will move on to brushing and treadwork. the "squibs" should note we are trying to crosscut (3-5) trees, the 1st of which is ~ 1 3/4 miles up trail (the last one we hope to cut is ~ 2 1/2 miles up the trail) so this is a fairly strenuous day.
In the Buckhorn Wilderness on the eastern slope of the Olympic Mountains, this hiker/equestrian trail follows the river valley ascent to Marmot Pass. The trail begins in an old growth fir forest, dotted with wonderful blobs of pink early in the summer, when rhododendrons are full in bloom. The trail then climbs into alpine meadows, boulder fields and across avalanche chutes on its way up to beautiful views from 6000 ft up.
