If the weather is clear, the views are great.  If not, the workout is still great!  We may encounter snow on the upper part of the trail.  Yaktraks, microspikes or other traction devices required.  Poles, gaiters and over the ankle boots highly recommended.  Be sure to bring warm clothes to put on when we stop at the top.   We'll plan to hike up the Hall Point Trail to Hall Point, then continue via the Change Creek drainage to the Great Wall Trail to the top.  Then return via the Mt WA new trail for an 11+ mile round trip with about 3800' elevation gain.  As always, but especially in winter, destination subject to change depending on weather conditions.

Required Gear:  Traction devices (such as YakTrax or Microspikes),  Non Cotton clothes,  Rain jacket,  warm jacket, warm gloves or mittens, warm hat, snacks, lunch, sit pad, headlamp.

Recommended: Hiking poles, boot, gaiters, rain pants, dry shirt to change into at top, map and compass.
