This is an exposed hike so sun protection will be very important.  We will start out along the Sourdough Ridge Trail and at the 5-way intersection take the Burroughs Mountain Trail to the end. This hike has a lot of long ups and downs but all that work is worth it to hear glaciers calving.  Let's experience that together at the top!
