Description

Mt. Ellinor is one of the southern-most peaks in the Olympics, and is Mt. Washington's closest neigbor. A surveyor by the name of George Davidson named the mountain after his boss' youngest daughter. (Davidson also named "The Brothers" after her two brothers, and Mt. Constance after Ellinor's oldest sister.) On a reasonably clear day, Ellinor can offer a variety of incredible views of all the major Cascade peaks, as well as close-range views of neighboring Mt. Washington, Stone, Pershing, and a glimpse of Mt. Olympus in the distance.

Getting There

1. Drive on US 101 to Hoodsport. 

2. Turn West onto Lake Cushman Road, and drive about 8 miles, until you come to a 3-way stop.

3. Turn right onto FS Road 24, then left on on Fs Road 2419 (a.k.a., Big Creek Road). 


NOTE: At about 5 miles, you can stop and take the lower trailhead, or head on up about another mile to the upper trailhead. Early in season, the road can be inaccessible without 4WD and good ground clearance, to get to the upper trailhead.

Garmisch,
Owen Darrow   Garmisch,
In the spring so many people glissade down the chute that it turns into a slush slide. I suggest you bring rain pants for added speed! Oct 16, 2010
