Create an itinerary including Mount Washburn
Hike to the peak of Mount Washburn, which reaches a height of 3,000 m (10,000 ft) above sea level. You may try your hiking skills by two different routes, keeping in mind that both have strenuous rating. Both are also roundtrip, one 9 km (6 mi), the other 8 km (5 mi) long. Elevation gain is about 425 m (1,300 ft) for both. For most hikers, Dunraven Pass route may be the better option, as it is considered the more scenic one. Start early before it gets too hot. It may take you about half a day to complete the route, so plan accordingly.

  • Worth to go~~~ Easy hike with a big trail
  • Words cannot explain how beautiful and rewarding this hike is! Definitely recommend it! If you’re not an experienced biker, just pace yourself! It’s very worth the 6 miles.
