Hike (1A). Rowton Peak Loop

This is an approx. 5 miles loop trail with about 800 ft elevation gain.  We’ll start off by hiking up to Rowton Peak with its expansive view of the Royal George Area.  There are a few fairly steep sections as we make our way up to Rowton Peak.  As we continue along Razorback Ridge, with one up and down section, we will enjoy a series of changing vista and forest views as well as some interesting lava formations.  We’ll leave the ridge and descend via a series of switchbacks and then make our way back on nicely forested trails.
