The third peak. Looks easy enough.
That point you see there is it — the third and most challenging peak of the Olomana Trail. I’ve hiked up Olomana a few times already but I was never able to get to the third peak. Last weekend, Dan, Jack and I set out to get to it. It was more challenging and time consuming than I expected. Total hiking time, round trip, was about five hours. It was incredibly fun. I’ll show you the path the top in the photos to follow.
Update 4/25/2011: This is a very popular hike and a lot of people do it but it’s still very dangerous. There have been several news reports recently about hikers falling on this trail and being critically injured. Yesterday, someone fell 150 feet and died. If you have any doubt in your hiking/climbing ability, you may want to consider a different trail.
