Seattle Alpine Scrambling
Merritt Lake TH, elev 3030'
Mt Mastiff - 8 miles, 3800' gain.
Mt Mastiff is located east of Stevens Pass on Nason Ridge just north of the Stevens Pass Highway/US-2. Mt Howard lies immediately to the west, Lake Wenatchee to the east, and the Cascade Range to the north and south. We'll be ascending via the SE Ridge from the Merritt Lake TH. I'll email TOPO! maps in JPEG format to trip participants prior to departure. Questions? Please call me.
From the west (Everett/Seattle), drive Stevens Pass Hiway/US-2 east over Stevens Pass. Take the 1.6 mile dirt road to Merritt Lake TH on the left just after milepost 76. Time: 2:00 from Seattle.
