7:00 am at the Horseshoe Bend trail head, at the east end of the town of Glacier, on the right immediately after SR 542 crosses the Nooksack River. This parking lot is across the street from the entrance to the Douglas Fir campground, where I will be staying in site #13 and #14.


Participants are invited to camp the night prior to this scramble at my reserved campsites at the Douglas Fir campground. They are also invited to sign up for my Yellow Aster Butte scramble the day before.
