Great conditions for a February snowshoe. The road to the trailhead was a bit icy in places, but had an amazing day on the summit.
Microspikes and snowshoes were used on an overcast day. Still had some good views though. Decent option for the winter season.
Climbed this a few times. good snowshoe in the winter. Makes for a miserable snowshoe in the summer though :)
Not a bad little hike. Took the wrong logging road on the way up, so we bushwhacked until we connected to the right road. Everything made sense on the way back!
A lot of people on the mountain that day.
With an odd "inversion layer" weather pattern occurring, it was actually 15-20 degrees WARMER at the summit than at the car. While the fog ravaged through the lowlands, the summit had spectacular views. A well-trodden route allowed us quick passage with minimal effort. No snowshoes, crampons, or microspikes needed.
Fun snowshoe trip
Fun snowshoe up to good views of the Teanaway and Stuarts.
a very easy snowshoe with decent views.
but I managed. Sadly my sickness got worse after this trip.
Snowshoed up with a strong breeze and cold temps
Not much to see because of weather but good company on the trip.
Lots of snow - what a great snowshoeing adventure! Stay on the ridge, even when it heads into the trees ... the summit will sneak up on you, and it is worth the effort - beautiful!
with hiker brian and his pal + a pregnant lady! none too scenic area better as a snowshoe
Not enough snow to use our snowshoes. It was EastKing, Josh Lewis, Raymond, and myself. We had some difficulty finding the correct logging road on the way up but we found it on the way back down.
Great views. Check out the trip report.
Fairly straigt forward clmib... that is once you find the trailhead. TH is burried in the 'Newport Hills' development that remains unfinished on the E side of Salmon Le Sac Rd. Wander around on the dirt roads for a while and keep to the right and you'll find it.
good pre-season conditioning climb. Snow is beginning to melt off the trail/roads, but it is still 95% covered. Use snow shoes unless you want to want to use twice the energy gettting up/down.
