Mowich Lake Road in a Winnebago Rialta?

Postby Nelson » Sun Mar 14, 2010 5:37 am

Planning to hike the Wonderland Trail in late August with a friend. I've been researching the route and decided to put in at Mowich Lake for an 11 day / 10 night trip.

My friend is traveling around the Northwest for several months this summer and will pick me up at the Seattle airport. This week he bought a 1997 Winnebago Rialta, and will be in a mini-Winni rather than the expected mini-SUV.

Will this contraption make it up the road to the trailhead??

Here's what one looks like:

Assuming that it's a bad idea to bring that thing up the road, is anyone aware of a shuttle / taxi service that might get us there from Buckley or somewhere in the region? We used a shuttle service for our Paria Canyon trip last October. Of course that is a special situation for a one-way hike, in at one trailhead, out at another.

Worst case is we can rent a car. We submit our permit applications next week.

Thanks for the info, tazz. Glad to hear we should be able to get up there. The plan before he bought the Winnebago was to motel it in Buckley the night before the trip, have an early breakfast and be heading up the road by 8:00 AM at the latest. Will probably stick with that, but I guess we have options now.

My friend says he is officially retired now that he has a Winnebago. He calls it a "chick magnet". :)
