Mount Pugh


Alpine Scramble - Mount Pugh

This is a very prominent summit with grand views; lots of elevation gain with easy but exposed scrambing.

  • Strenuous 5, Technical 2
  • Moderate
  • Mileage: 11.0 mi
  • Elevation Gain: 5,300 ft

Mt. Pugh TH at 8:00 am

The pace on this trip will be moderate.  If you are a fast hiker looking for a challenging S5 trip, you may be disappointed by the pace.

You will need to carry plenty of water.  I plan to drink at least a pint at the TH and to carry 3 liters.  There is a small lake about 1.5 miles up the trail, but no reliable water above it.
