WWE PDX – Elk Mountain to King Mountain Loop Hike

June 6 @ 7:30 am - 5:30 pm

Join the ladies of Women Who Explore for a world-class adventure to the summits of two mountains in the Oregon Coast Range, that boast incredible views, heart-quickening scramble and stunning wildflowers to boot. 

This hike is NOT for the faint of heart – we’ll be traveling 10.8 miles round trip, with 3,700 feet of elevation gain. 

The trail is rated as VERY difficult. There are sections with rope and scramble-portions, this trail is not very dog friendly, although there are no regulations against them. 

There are no reliable water sources on this trail, so please plan on carrying your entire days supply of water with you.
