Tibbetts Mountain: No trespassing!
The most difficult part of this trip was finding a spot where I could start the hike without trespassing.
approx. 2,839 feet
approx. 6.2 miles
4 hours 16 minutes
2 hours 4 minutes ascending from Hay Canyon Road to summit of Tibbetts Mountain
1 hour 31 minutes descending from summit of Tibbetts Mountain to Hay Canyon Road
I first tried to climb Tibbetts from Peshastin. But after half a mile of walking I encountered this sign on the nose of the ridge. I respect property owner's rights, so I returned to my car.
I next tried to find an approach from Olalla Canyon Road. All I found was a high concentration of 'no trespassing' and 'beware of dog' signs.

Finally a hiker-friendly spot! This is my trail head at the end of the Hay Canyon County Road.

Back at my trail head. The end.
