Carne Mountain


Backpack - Carne Mountain

Overnight near the top of Carne Mtn. Sunrise/sunset vistas over the Glacier Peak Wilderness.

  • Strenuous
  • Challenging
  • Mileage: 12.0 mi
  • Elevation Gain: 3,600 ft
  • Pace: Moderate

0800 at the junction of Chiwawa River road and Phelps Creek road.

Plan is to walk the terrible Phelps Creek road to the trailhead, which involves about 2 miles of road walking, then hike to the basin below Carne mountain, where we will set up camp.  Weather permitting, we will enjoy sunset/sunrise from Carne Mountain, which has spectacular views of the Glacier Peak Wilderness.
