9.04 miles of hiking • 4000' elevation gain •

Winter has arrived in the N. Cascades. Great views from the top with clear views of Mt. Baker, Glacier Peak, etc... Could even see the Eastern Olympic range to the S/W & the top of Rainier to the South. Snow began in earnest approx. 1 1/2 miles and 1200' from the summit but there is a very pronounced boot path so no route finding was involved. Microspikes were useful but unless you plan to partake in some off trail exploring snowshoes are currently not needed.


Sarah Johnson hearts this trip.
