About this spot
This is a very strenuous hike, from the Upper Trailhead the trail gains 2500 feet in just 1.6 miles. The rewards are amazing views over the Hood Canal, Puget Sound and the Cascade range from Glacier Peak to Mount Rainier. At the top is a vast panorama of Olympic summits from Mount Washington to Mount Olympus. In addition to the broad scenery are meadows covered with sub-alpine flowers in season and the very good chance of sighting mountain goats on the cliffs and crags or right next to you. http://www.fs.fed.us/wildflowers/regions/Pacific_Northwest/MtEllinor/index.shtml
