Trip Planning Questions

Can you drive? If so, how many? Can you let people know where you are driving from in the "trip forum" so that you might be able to help people get to the meeting place if they don't have their own transportation.

Are you ok with stopping in Glacier or somewhere along the road for something to eat at the end of the trip?

Participant Information

A good trail leads from the valley near Glacier Washington up into the alpine with great views of Mt. Baker.  We will likely hit snow about half way up.  Probably not enough for snow shoes, but micro spikes and ski poles would be handy.  The peak is a scramble which may not be in condition to climb with the new snow, but we can enjoy the exercise and the great weather forecast.  We meet at six am at the Chevron on Boundary.  The days are short so make sure you bring a head lamp and batteries, along with warm cloths and rain gear.  We do intend to turn around  in time to make it off the hill before dark.  I have not done this hike before, but understand it offers great views.  It is about four hours of fast walking to the top.
