Activity Notes

We’ll begin at the Kautz Creek Trailhead in Mt. Rainier National Park and hike to the iconic home of So-To-Lick (Indian Henry) who guided several people, including John Muir, up large sections of Mt. Rainier.

The trail is an out-and-back that covers 3800’ of elevation gain and is 11 miles round trip. The 5.5 miles to our destination is a steep but steady climb that never let’s up until just before we drop into the meadow at Indian Henry’s.

If you’re ready for great views and a great conditioning opportunity, this hike is for you. Please be in adequate physical condition to complete the hike before signing up.
