This hike will be a continuation of our Long Difficult Hike series. “If it’s not long it will be difficult; if it’s not difficult it will be long.” But always memorable.

For some hikers this can be a very challenging hike. Half the hike will be on-trail and half off. Bring both micro spikes and snowshoes, as well as your regular cold weather gear.

We have the option to stop at the Conifer SnowPack taproom on the way home.

Let me know if you have any healthcare issues that could possibly come up during the hike.

Leader will send out a detailed trip write-up, including GPX file, prior to departure day.
