Join us as we hike around majestic Glacier Peak. This 82.7 mile, 22,500 feet net elevation gain trek circum-navigates Glacier Peak largely on maintained trails. About half the distance will be on the Pacific Crest Trail and there will be a 5 mile off-trail/use-trail section during the hike. Glacier Peak Wilderness is a remote and rugged landscape with numerous passes and stream crossings along the way.
Pre-requisites: Participants need to be in good physical condition and have experience on at least one 50 mile (or greater) trek. We will be traveling light and fast, up to 19 miles per day with daily elevation gains varying from 2500' to 6800'. The terrain will be challenging with possible brush and scree in the off-trail portion.
The outing cost ranges from $318 to $271 for a group of 6 minimum to 8 maximum participants (including leaders) and covers all trail fees and lodging costs. We will be carpooling to the trailhead and staying in a hotel the night before and after the trek. A $100 deposit plus the Outing Fee ($10/day for members; $20/day for nonmembers) will be required upon acceptance.
