Basic Snowshoe - Swauk Forest Discovery Trail


Basic Snowshoe - Swauk Forest Discovery Trail

Snowshoe trip from the Swauk Campground Sno-Park. Snowshoe in a beautful forest to the Porky Basin viewpoint.

  • Moderate/Strenuous
  • Moderate
  • Mileage: 5.1 mi
  • Elevation Gain: 900 ft
  • Pace: 2 mph

Meet time and place will be communicated by leader in welcome message. Sno-Park pass required at trailhead.

This is a basic snowshoe trip with Leader Permission required as it is exploratory for both leaders. Let me know your comfort with exloratory trips. We do not anticipate problems based on the description, but flexibility may be required. 

A word about pace: Snow conditions such as deep powder for breaking trail or really slick concrete snow in steep sections could slow us down. We could have to make a choice between cutting the trip short or getting back later than we'd like. You must be able to hike at least 2 mph  (my usual pace) to come.
