Details

Mt. Silverheels stands by itself, with a great view in all directions from the summit. Our route is entirely off-trail, short and steep, but without technical difficulties. Off-trail hikes burn considerably more energy than on-trail hikes of similar length and altitude gain. Be sure you're properly conditioned for this situation. All hike participants will be expected to share in trail breaking, We will be above timberline for most of the hike - be prepared with sunscreen, lots of water, extra clothing layers, possible cold windy conditions. We will plan on stopping after 30 min hiking for clothing adjustment, breaks after that approx every 60 min. Snowshoes,hiking poles, an ice axe if you have one, and microspikes or alternative traction device necessary.
Any trip member with medical conditions that might impact the trip are asked to contact trip leader in advance to avoid discussions at the trail head.
