Upper Trail head

"With the recent lack of any trip reports on Mt. Ellinor we were expecting a possible repeat of last year's attempt to get to the lower trailhead, which ended up with us having to dig the 4Runner out of snow half way up. We were pleasantly surprised to find next to no snow on the road until right before the lower trailhead. It looked like a lot of snow and ice beyond, and we wanted to start low anyways, so off we went from the lower trailhead - only 4 cars there when we left. The lower trail is snow free and a beautiful path through old growth - A wonderful place to be as the sun was risin" - BryHong8, Dec 9, 2017
"Great day hike with some good buds. No need for crampons but the axe came in handy. Shared the summit with a goat only. The glissade was phenomenal as well. Amazing peak for minimal effort. " - MatthewWinterberg, May 23, 2017
"Started from the lower trailhead with dry weather. About .5 miles after traveling past the upper trail junction we hit ice packed snow. It started snowing on us at 4500ft didn't stop. No visibility. On decent our tracks were already filled with snow. Used chains and ice axe. Last weekend we hiked nearby Mt.Rose..it was warm out tank tops and mosquitoes. A few short days later. Freezing weather and snow pounding. If you're going to the Olympics...pack everything!" - rebecca1, Apr 19, 2014
"First time up this classic Olympic peak. Started at the Lower TH and made the summit in 2 hrs. Still mostly glissade-able all the way down to the bottom of the Winter Route chute (a few rocky patches, look out!) RT 3hr20. First peak in 9 months, great to start off with a total classic like Ellinor." - scott, Jun 15, 2013
