The Enchantments


Alpine Scramble - The Enchantments

This hike is being offered in combination with the Seattle Scramble Labor Day Weekend at Eight Mile Campground in Icicle Creek. Although this is not an actual scramble and does not count towards student graduation. We will be hiking from the Stuart Lake trailhead to the Snow Lake trailhead and try and figure out a shuttle car with the group that is on the trip.

  • Very Strenuous
  • Challenging
  • Mileage: 18.0 mi
  • Elevation Gain: 6,500 ft

For those staying at the Eight Mile campground we can meet at 5am, and sort out vehicles and shuttles. If you are coming from somewhere else and want to meet at the trailhead, meet us there at 5:30am ready to hike, let me know in advance.

I will be at the Eight Mile campground on Friday, without cell phone service, so if you need to get a hold of me do it by Thursday night.

This is a very strenuous hike, please don't sign up if you are not in the best of shape. To finish before dark we will be on the go most of the day with limited breaks for food and to collect water.

We will be traveling above 8,000 and even though it could start out as a warm sunny day, it can turn nasty very quickly and even snow, with very little notice. So be prepared, with extra layers and waterproof items.
