Hike from the equestrian trailhead at Beacon Rock State Park. We will do a loop along the West and East Hardy Ridge trails. If the snow allows, we will got to Phlox Point. If the weather is good, we may also enjoy nice vistas if the weather is good. Parking at the trailhead requires a Washington Discover Pass.
Trail will be snowy and icy. Bring ten essentials, microspikes, and weather-appropriate clothing. Poles recommended but optional. We will go a moderate pace.
Hike will be cancelled if too windy or other bad weather.
Pre-BCEP conditioner. Many groups also hike this in it's longer version (Hardy-Hamilton Loop) as a BCEP conditioner.
