Details

This is a modest hike with 2650 feet of elevation gain in about 3.25 miles. We will depart from the Herman Lake trailhead at approximately 10,300 feet, follow a well marked trail up into the gulch. From tree line, we go off trail and climb to the saddle between Woods and Parnassus mountains. Once on the saddle, we turn west and ascend to the summit at 12,940 feet. 



Please bring your ten essentials and several layers, warm hat and gloves.



I will send out a weather update as we get closer to departure.
