      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Having worked on the Olympic trail crew for 13 years this seems kinda ambitious to me, since it is late October after all. Good luck!

If I remember correctly (and the permanent tissue damage on the sides of my feet serve as a constant reminder smile.gif the knee bang down from Hayden pass to the Elwha trail is about 8 miles o' fun. Last summer some of this section was washed out and/or lost in a bog or two. Not to say you can't make it though. Sounds like a great time to me. I went from Dose over Hayden, up over low divide and out Quinault in 3 1/2 days and saw a total of 4 people from Dose to Low Divide and never camped near anyone. This was in August. You should have a true lonely time in October.

 

To answer your question (and WITHOUT being a smart ass as above) there is a lot to see. Take the side trip to thousand acre meadow from just before Hayden (see the Wood guide). Scramble a couple peaks in the area. Of course...if you really want to see stuff, you might want to try to add a couple days to your itinerary.

 

Report back!

tell ya what... going 20 miles per day you won't have very much time to see much, except for the trail flying by beneath your feet. rolleyes.gif ...... jeezis Christ, mate... take your time and enjoy it!!! then again, depending on weather, you may HAVE to go 20 miles a day just to stay warm. cantfocus.gif

 

that sounds like a killer hike though.. Have fun!!

I wonder how they knew he was going in October?

Pure psychic stupidity (and lack of reading skills)
