Mission Mtns access

Postby peakhugger » Sun Jun 26, 2011 7:07 pm

Glacier Creek Trailhead-
Anyone have info on access to this trailhead? Still snowed in or washed out?
I have a feeling the last 2 miles of FS Rd 561 may be inaccessible due to snow drifts in the trees...
Local USFS ranger station did not have any info as of Friday, June 24.

Any related data for other trailheads on the East side of the Missions?

Glacier Creek Trailhead is accessible. Here is a link to trail conditions for the east side of the Missions. They update it about once a week starting in June:

Lots of snow in the Missions. I was just up to Lindy Peak last Friday and the snowline is right around 6000'.

Where are you headed? I'm hoping to climb Mcdonald from the Glacier trailhead next week sometime.
