Winter Scramble - Mount Ararat (winter)

Delightful snowshoe trip through a magical land of deep snow. Too bad the clouds obscured any views.

  • Road suitable for all vehicles


We started at the Kautz Creek trail head. The first two miles had little snow and we were able to make excellent time. Once the snow level got deep enough to require snowshoes the going got slower, especially in areas where we could not easily locate the trail. It took 5.5 hours to reach the summit. Clouds and fog obscured any views. I must go back some day and try the peak under clear skies.
