- Elevation Change:
- 2660 feet
This is the longest route - overnights are suggested. Campsites are located up and downstream.
Hike along the Warner Point Nature Trail to the third bench, shaded by a Douglas Fir. From here the trail climbs for a short distance - look for the serviceberry bush sign on the left side of the trail as it levels out. The Warner Route leads left from here (you’ll be hiking away from the canyon), skirting the backside of Warner Point. Avoid the first drainage and continue west to the lowest saddle on the ridge before descending. Study the route as side drainages make the climb difficult to follow.
