Details

We will start at the Glacier Gorge Trailhead and go up the winter trail to the intersection with the trail to The Loch. From here we will follow this summer trail for a bit then decide if the stream is covered adequately to take the winter route up the "canyon" or proceed on the summer trail above the canyon. After crossing The Loch we will proceed on the Sky Pond Trail towards Timberline Falls. Note often this trail has not been used so there is a good chance the group will need to take turns breaking trail. At the falls we will determine weather to proceed up the steep climb to the west of the falls on the summer trail or take a wide route further east, which is still pretty steep (in the past I have come up the steep route west of the falls and come down to the east). Once above the falls the group will climb futher up to Glass Lake the climb again up to Sky Pond. Once again there is a high probability that we will need to break trail.
