Trip Report    

Intermediate Snowshoe - Windy Knob

We summitted Windy Knob and Tronsen Head (east of Diamond Head) in crystal clear weather and fine snow conditions.

  • Road suitable for all vehicles
  • We parked at Blewett Pass, passed through the snowmobile  staging area and onto the left most of the groomed routes.  After a few yards, we left it at the switchback, taking a little used trail up and through a parking lot,  then recrossed the groomed trail before dropping downslope to the east to access a road coming up from Tronsen Meadow.  From here we discovered a system of trails not appearing on conventional  maps which led us up Windy Knob and Tronsen Head; much simpler navigating that had been expected.

     Here's a link to the trail system:
