All of the day

Snow Mountain Ranch, DH-2

George Meriwether,

The hike is located west of Yakima and is about 7-8 miles RT with about 1400 feet elevation gain. We will hike at a moderate pace on the Cowiche Mountain Loop Trail which starts at the parking lot and climbs to the summit of Cowiche Mountain. On a clear day, the top of Oregon’s Mount Hood can be seen from the summit of Cowiche Mountain, along with sweeping views of the Yakima Valley. As always, bring the Ten Essentials, lunch, water, and be prepared for cold windy conditions.

Signup deadline is Thursday, March 25, 2021 at 8:00pm. The trip is limited to 10 people (2 groups of 5).

Due to Covid-19 restrictions, car-pooling is not allowed. Everyone will have to provide their own transportation. The drive to the trailhead from Richland is about 90 miles one-way. No passes are required. Directions will be provided after signup.
