Lost Creek Ridge and Lake Byrne in the Glacier Peak Wilderness. We'll most likely establish a base camp at Sun-up Lake, approximately 6 miles and 4200 feet from the trailhead, which is on FS Road 49 off the Mountain Loop Hiway. Day 2 will be an exploratory day hike of about 12 miles round trip from Sun-up Lake to Lake Byrne, which is nestled at the base of Glacier Peak. Of particular interest along Lost Creek Ridge are recent (July25th) sightings of a few wolves. As always on my trips we will use Bear canisters to protect the bears, and us! Leader permission required please.
