will arrange car-pooling via email
The core of the trip is a 35 mile loop in the Glacier Peak Wilderness. There are interesting side trips available that can extend total mileage to over 50 miles. The first side trip options are out of Entiat Meadows. Another side trip option will be to hike up Ice Creek to Ice Lakes.
Over a 6 day period one climbs an estimated 12,000 feet, so on average 2000 feet of climbing per day, with the most elevation gain in a single day at perhaps 3400 feet. Per day mileage is in the 10 – 12 mile range, with the first and last days offering about 5+ miles of hiking and 4 – 5 hours of driving.
Although open to all club members over age 18, this trip is also part of the B3 backpacking Building Blocks series and eligible for B3 course graduation credit. In addition, this backpack will have a practical instructional/learning focus and offer experience in proper gear use and camp set-up and on-the-trail techniques.
Pre-trip assistance with gear selection, food planning, and gear sharing will be included in leader emails prior to the trip.
