Snowshoe Snowden Meadows to Crater Lake Trail

Monday, February 13, 8:30 am

This is a loop route extending the usual snowshoe from Andrews Lake to the back of Snowden Meadows. From there we will go due west up one small creek bed and down another, descending to the Crater Lake Trail and returning on that to our cars. Great Views of Snowden, Engineer Mtn and all the peaks above Molas. Expect about five hours on trail. This is a backcountry winter outing. While avalanche conditions on this route are minimal, it is still recommended that hikers carry appropriate gear (avalanche beacon, shovel, and probe).
Limit 15. Two well-mannered dogs on approval. Carpool fee $7
