Snow level will determine a lot about this trip, including how far up the snow allows us to drive. If snow level is relatively low, we could drive higher *if* we have NW Forest Passes to allow parking beyond the intersection of FR 9031 and FR 9030 (about a mile from the freeway exit). We’ll certainly hike some on forest service road initially, and then continue on to Talapus Lake, and optionally continue to Olallie lake depending on conditions and how we feel. This is an “E+” trip --- participants are required to have taken the “Snowshoe Basic” course, or either “Alpine Scrambling” or “Basic Climbing”. If snow levels just don’t support hiking this route, we’ll instead hike the Kendall Peak Lakes route, off I-90 exit 54. If this turns out to be the case, however, snow park permits will be required for carpool vehicles.
