Quick last minute trip up after doing a loop with Mount Helen, Eagle Pk, and Ski Heil Pk. Great view of that ridge between Brokeoff and Lassen Pk. Traversed the ridge to the southeast until several footholds/handholds popped. This volcanic pebble encrusted outcrop is not as solid in places as it looks-travel with caution.
Quick, sometimes steep snowshoe from the SW Park Entrance.
Hiked along the park road from Southwest Campground past Sulfur Works to where the road traversed the ridge-line. There, we strapped on our snowshoes and waddled through 10 foot deep snow to the summit. Fun winter adventure for a memorial day weekend!
Very nice view from fhe top!
Nice outing with Amy. We enjoyed the free park admission for MLK Day. Had lunch on top.
While I noticed at least one easier route up, the view from the road to the peak of the way I took called out. Leaving the car at a sizable, paved turnout, I followed the creek for a bit, then hit snow and just made like a mountain goat straight for the top.
Enjoyed a nice somewhat more relaxing day following a long one covering Mount Helen, Bumpass Mountain, Bumpass Hell, and Mount Conard. Great place to visit in the spring!
