Tumalo Mountain (10 Sep 2023)

Post by ACuteSushi » September 12th, 2023, 5:07 pm

Start: Dutchman Snow Park

Parking: Large, paved lot. No passes (that I was aware of).

Distance: 4 miles RT

Gain: 1,400'

Summit: 7,700'

Directions: Started by restrooms. At the only junction, almost immediately, I went straight. Followed trail to the summit; there were a few different mini loops near the summit but they were all very short and led to the summit.

Conditions: Wide, mostly open, dusty trail. Easy steepness most of the way, with a few short moderately steep sections.

Worth it?: If you only have 3 hours available, then yes. If you have a full day, go do something bigger and less crowded!

It's a terrific backcountry ski, too. But same as your advice: it's a relatively short trip, and makes the most sense if you only have half a day.
Believe it or not, I barely ever ride a mountain bike.
