Hiking: Dix Mountain


This mountain has a higher difficulty rating than most we have done, but it did not seem too much different. There was a long hike to and from the mountain, and there were some steep sections.

It seems like most people camped near the trail not too far from the mountain, but we hiked 7.3 miles from the Elk Lake Road parking area to the summit via Hunter's Pass and 6.6 miles back via the Beckhorn. The parking area was basically full at 8:15AM.

The views were great, and the summit was big enough that we could find a nice quiet spot to stop and relax. The weather was perfect, with a predicted high in the high 60s.

My phone stopped recording data on the way back, possibly because it was busy delivering me email when I briefly got a signal at the summit.
