Dickerman Mountain (winter)

getting there

Heading East on the Mountain Loop Highway, the trailhead will be on your left approximately 5 miles after Silverton. 


There is a waterfall gully located at 4,200 ft where the trail traverses under a steep rock face. The rock funnels snow down into a fan of compressed snow and ice. It can become very steep. Because of the shade from trees, the pile often survives into June. After the snow melts it isn't hazardous, but when snow-covered, it can be steep and a slip can be deadly. In such conditions, an ice ax is mandatory and possibly even crampons. Be prepared to turn around if not properly trained and equipped. Two fatalities were reported in 2006.
