  • Challenging
  • Mileage: 12.6 mi

We will meet at the Quilcene Visitor Center at 0630 and drive together to the trailhead from there.  Carpooling encouraged.  Will likely encounter some snow on the road toward the trailhead.

We will keep an eye on snow conditions.  Not likely, but some chutes on this trail can present avy danger in winter conditions.  Snow forecast for Wednesday evening, Thursday, and Friday (as of Wednesday morning).  We will be prudent and satisfy ourselves with the view from Marmot Pass if conditions require it, or relocate the trip to a lower elevation area if required.
