Details

This is a hike up Square Top Mountain in the Mt Evens wilderness area. We will begin the hike at the top of Guanella Pass, hit the summit and return back the way we came. The biggest concern for the trip will be evening thunder storms, so we will keep an eye on the weather before and during the trip. I hiked in this area on 6/22 and there was a good ammount of snow from the lakes to the summit. I am assuming over the time that most of the snow has melted or been packed down, so I don't think snowshoes will be necessary, but microspikes might be helpful. The snow should be soft enought by now that kicksteps will be good to cross any snow.



Please bring 10 essentials.



Microspikes are optional.
