|Date of Hike:
||Tuesday, June 15, 2021|
|Parking/Access Road Notes:
||Good signs all the way to the trailhead, roads decent you could take Mom's car without wrecking it. We parked on the edge of the road right near the trailhead. I didn't notice a parking lot even though I thought there was one?
||Dry Trail |
|Water Crossing Notes:
|Trail Maintenance Notes:
||A few nasty blowdowns between the peaks. A couple were difficult to get around and then the question was where did the trail go? ha ha. Blazing is odd, Blue blazes up to #4 and a good mile past and then there are none and then Red plastic diamonds nailed to the trees all the way to Baker's summit. |
||sure but bring water along for me. |
||yes bad at the trailhead then out run them |
|Lost and Found:
|| No bushwhack or open summits due to the forecast so we opted for this fine hike. Loved it! Well worn trail to #4 fire tower but the path to Baker is a delight! Yes a real wilderness trail (okay I know it crosses a snowmobile trail but). Foot bed is not worn and we had to step on many a wildflower growing in the trail. We heard thunder and got sprinkled on but that was it, we were lucky. We were surprised to meet one person coming down from Baker, he had come up via the snomo trail scouting it out for a winter adventure. No views but I climbed the tower on #4 anyway. Lew was here again. |
