Details

This is a challenging, tough trip, so only experienced, confident hikers should register. It will be a long, hard day - back to the meeting spot at 7pm?? From the Glacier Gorge Trailhead, we will travel past Alberta Falls and The Loch on the way to Timberline Falls.  When we reach TF, we will have to scramble up about 30' ? of wet rocks beside the Falls - which will be rigorous and semi-hazardous - and we will be getting splashed as we scramble up - so bring rain gear.  The mile? round trip beyond the Falls to Skypond and back is also extreme hiking. Not quite scrambling, but requiring careful foot placement on every step, including occasional handholds. All of that said, this is a VERY SCENIC hike.
