Walk with a Ranger
Join in for a mountaintop hike lasting up to an hour and a half in length. National Forest Service Rangers and volunteers will point out the beautiful historic and geologic landmarks guests can see from the top of the mountain, 10,350’ in elevation.
Every Friday, Saturday and Sunday at 11 a.m. – weather permitting – beginning June 9 through August 13, you can take a special walk.
Walkers will meet with the ranger on the deck of The Tip Restaurant. Guests may hike up or ride the Scenic Summer Chairlift. Everyone is welcome! They will tailor the hike to the abilities and ages of the guests who wish to join in. All ages will enjoy learning about the exciting history of the mountain and the communities that surround it. Rangers will teach guests about our rich environmental diversity and the animals that share the mountains with us.
Please bring plenty of water and sunscreen! (If you forget, both are available at The Tip.) It’s recommended to bring a hat, jacket, rain gear and closed-toed, comfortable shoes. Guests will be hiking on rocky, uneven ground and mountain weather can move in very quickly.
Join in, meet some new friends, learn some fun new facts and take in amazing vistas.
If you are riding the chairlift to the Summit, plan on getting on the lift 30 minutes prior to the time you wish to meet the group.
As you’re riding the chairlift, look across the road to the Pioneer Flyer zipline on the other side of the big Willow Pond. You might want to try that later.
