Mount Horne (A Wander in the Clouds)

~ submitted by Phil Dol

November 10th, 2019

The six of us started at the Cathedral Grove parking lot. We followed the cabin road to the start of the trail, from there it is a steep hike up to the deteriorating railroad tracks. After a short wander along the tracks it was time for more uphill hiking until we reached the logging road followed by the last uphill section to the summit for lunch.

Even though all the weather forecasts predicted clearing  around mid-day, it wasn’t until we were back at Cameron Lake that the sun broke through.

When we returned to our vehicles, what had been an empty parking lot was now full of noisy vehicles and people, a stark contrast to the peaceful hike we had just completed.

7 hikers met and make the car shuttle for Mt Horne, Mt Westley and the ridge. It was a very hot day views were awesome. Hike took 7.5 hours we did follow the quad trail in places. I kept reminding people to drink we had couple people that ended up with leg cramps but mustard seems to help. I am going to carry some now, LOL

Great group and I enjoyed leading.

A girls hike up Mt. Horne

–submitted by Stefanie Bates

We had a fun all ladies adventure up Mt. Horne on Oct 30th. It was not much of a day for views but the company was amazing and we had lots of laughs.
We went in at Cathedral grove before turning up the steep terrain as we got to know each other. One group member (Julie) had never hiked up a mountain so it was pretty exciting for her as well as us. She tackled the whole thing like a champ.
We never did see much as far as views but then again it did not matter. This was more about the journey than the destination.
After a quick lunch at the top we made our way down… Some on their bottoms. A good time all around.
