From the Abyss TH we will follow the trail West for one mile up a gentle grade and then begin a gradual climb for 2.5 miles up to our turn around point at Burning Bear pass at 10,750 feet. The trailhead is approximately 2/10 of a mile across from the Abyss TH parking lot. We will use snowshoes, but also bring traction devices, although we probably won't need them.

Please send me email or inform me privately if you have any medical issues that I should be aware of.
