Activity Notes

The most challenging conditioning hike in the north Oregon coast range, Elk-Kings Traverse is a loop hike that is very steep, features a few scramble moves, and is maintained by Mazamas. Our loop will be counter-clockwise. We will park at the Kings Mountain trailhead and hike the Wilson River Trail to the Elk Mountain trailhead. Then we will ascend Elk Mountain, traverse to Kings Mountain, and descend to the cars. Really the only thing easy about this hike is the start on the Wilson River Trail. Successful applicants for this hike will be in excellent 2022 condition.
