Mt. Trelease is the prominent mountain on the North side as you approach the Eisenhower Tunnel from the East. From the gate at the Dry Gulch TH, head up the dirt road to where a fenced-in storage area will be on the right. Just before this, off the main road, is an unmarked but obvious trail that heads steeply uphill into the woods to the West. This trail gains about 500 vertical feet and is 0.9 miles from the parking area before flattening out and turning south (left) to the 1970 Wichita State plane crash site. After visiting the crash site we will bushwhack West to treeline and then North up to the summit, where there are some great views. The logging road to the crash site is quite steep, but the rest of the hike is more moderate.

Please send me email or inform me privately if you have any medical issues that I should be aware of.



Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
