Pillar Mountain may lack dramatic slopes, but you will still get in a good climb on this week’s hike!
Just because Pillar Mountain is located in town, doesn't mean that it is boring! Pillar has an entire network of trails from the spruce forests on its lower slopes up to the alpine tundra on the top. This route is an up and over hike. You will need to stage a second car or plan on a longer hike if you go out and back.
Don’t forget to bring something to trade for the geocache! The Macaq cache is located on the trail up from Swampy Acres. Listen to how to say macaq on the Alutiiq Word of the Week and earn your extra credit point by sending in a video of you saying sun in Alutiiq!
