This is the trip I had originally planned for the 4th of July Weekend but cancelled due to low snow levels. Snow shouldn't be an issue for us this weekend. 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 Basin, 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. The pace on this trip will be slow to moderate. Some prior backpacking or camping experience is recommended (but not required) for this trip. Questions? Email is the most reliable way to contact me. Map: Green Trails Walupt Lake No. 335
