Route 59 in Snowshoe Routes Washington 3rd Edition.

This will be a long day! We will start from the Gold Creek Sno-Park, snowshoeing along the road for about 3 miles until we reach the Mount Margaret summer trailhead (which is inaccessible in the winter). From there we will follow the summer trail to the summit. Expect a healthy dose of trail-breaking!
