Hike: Hamilton Mountain / Hardy Creek Loop, N. Bonneville, WA

AllTrails map

Getting There

The usual. See previous posts. Take WA Hwy 14 from Washougal to Beacon Rock, then to the trailhead on the road to the campground. 

The Hike

Distance: 7.30 miles
Elevation Gain: 2,221 ft
Highest Point: 2,363 ft

This was my last hike before the "big" one. I was just interested in getting some more practice, conditioning, etc.

Additionally, it'd been awhile since I last did the loop through the Saddle. In fact, for future reference, I found the trail to the top of the mountain, I think.

On the descent, I took the Equestrian trail to the Hardy Creek trail; last time I took Don's Cutoff.

This time I skipped Little Beacon. Maybe next time.
