Details

We will follow the standard route for Square Top that bypasses Square Top Lakes.  There is an expansive flat summit area that affords a 360 degree view.




Notes

There still may be remaining snow and micro spikes may be necessary, trekking pole(s) recommended.  Some of the stream crossings may be flowing at higher rates on the descent and expect to cross some muddy sections of trail.  Spare shoes in the car and plastic bags to put muddy boots in are a good idea.  It is optional to bring an ice axe, I have been there several times even in July that there was the opportunity glissade some sections on the descent.
