Bailey Traverse

Return to Message Board

For Labor Day 4-5 of us are considering tackling the Bailey Range. We would park one car at Whiskey Creek and begin the hike at Sol Duc (or Olympic Hot Springs) work our way up to High Divide, the Cat Walk, Stephens Peak, over to Dodger Point and out the Long Ridge(??) trail out at Whiskey Bend. Can anyone provide detailed info regarding the stretch past the Catwalk to Dodger? I've read that it's best to stay high of Cream Lake...beyond that, any tips on what to expect would be helpful and appreciated. We will have 5days - 4nights for this trip.

Wish I had some info for you, but never ventured past High Divide. Would love to hear about it on your return though, so keep us updated. It sounds like an awesome trip.
