Mt. Ellinor Lower Trailhead

Area Status: Open

Provides lower access to: Mt. Ellinor Trail #812

The lower trail climbs gently through the forest for the first mile, and then becomes steeper and increasingly rough. At timberline, 2.5 miles from the lower trailhead, the trail intersects the winter climbing route to the right and the summer trail route to the left. This is a good turnaround point for inexperienced hikers.
