Hike Snowden Tarn Loop

Sunday, August 4, 7:30 am Register by Email

Starting from the Andrews Lake trailhead, we will tour the upper meadow of Snowden, beginning on the Crater Lake Trail, and the ‘use’ trail that heads towards the West Buttress of Snowden Peak. Negotiate the talus fields before we ascend to the high alpine meadows, where we are rewarded with tarns and wildflowers. We will climb (off trail) to about 12,300 feet before continuing south-southwest until meeting up with the Crater Lake Trail again, which we will follow back to the trailhead. Carpool $5.00. Limit 12. Dogs: ask leader.
