July 11, 2015 - Dog Mountain

Summit: 
W7W/LC-119

Description of hike is that of a lesser grade, but longer distance.  We took the shorter distance (about 6.7 miles total) and 2800 elevation gain.  We took the trail to the right and stayed on the newer trail. 

It was very windy up on top which caused us to leave pretty quickly after getting four contacts....

If you are hiking the short hike from the parking lot near the top, take the paved path to the far right of the parking lot.  The hike is less than a mile to the summit.  The summit is very small.  It is best to do this early in the morning I think as to not disturnb other hikers.  As we were leaving over 100 people were comin

July 10, 2015 - Wilkes Hill

Summit: 
W7W/LC-162

This summit turned out to be on land owned by Weyerhauser and the parameters for use did not make it doable for me on this day.

Weyerhauser allows access from February 1st to August 30, with out a permit, and all other times a permit is required.  You must hike in or Mountain Bike in (which I was not prepared for this time), an unknown distance, which I am guessing to be up to two miles.  

I will return some time when I have a bit more time and planning for hiking, running, or mountain biking in.
