We will hike the Nannie Ridge - Walupt Creek Loop, 15 1/2 miles approximately 2000' elevation gain plus side trips. We will camp at Sheep Lake while we explore the area. Options for this trip include a hike up Nannie Peak, a jaunt along the Pacific Crest Trail to Cispus Pass, a detour to the Coleman Weedpatch, and, of course, the trek along Nannie Ridge to our campsite. I hope we'll see the elusive mountain goats that call this rugged area home. If these trails are still snowed under, I have a backup trip in the Goat Rocks Wilderness Area in mind. Some prior backpacking or camping experience is recommended (but not required) for this trip. Please be willing to be flexible, as the snow levels will dictate our ultimate itinary. We will not be fording dangerous streams or traversing dangerous snow slopes. Questions? Email is the most reliable way to contact me. Map: Green Trails Walupt Lake No. 335
