Platte Peak is located in the Lost Creek Wilderness. This is a hike mostly on good trail with some off trail to the summit near the end.  Based on conditions, we may need microspikes or snowshoes. The leader has not done this trip before so be prepared for a little adventure.


Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
