Ascent Trip Report


Route = Elk Lake to Dix Trail to Beckhorn to Dix and back the way we came

Distance round-trip (per GPS) = 12.8 miles

Total hike time (including stops) = 8.75 hours

Cumulative elevation gain (per GPS) = 4068 feet

Trailhead used = Elk Lake

Comments: It was a warm day (80s) so we found this to be a long and tiring hike. Aiden scrapped his elbow good while climbing over the Beckhorn. Small peak but 360 views. Nice view of the great range from the South. We didn’t take the Hunter’s Pass loop because we didn’t know how steep it was. The hike out seemed very long. We later learned that Hunter’s Pass would have been a good route.
