Hike Gold Mint Trail Hatcher Pass

  • Aug 10, 2014 · 11:00 AM
  • Otto's Place

All depends on the weather and trail conditions. , Gold Mint Trail

http://alaskahikesearch.com/hikes/golden-mint-trail/

Bring a lunch, something to drink, good walking shoes and don't forget your camera. Bring along warm clothes because Hatcher Pass is at the higher elevation and could be a little cool.  A walking stick or ski pole is also handy, I have a few to lend.  Don't forget the bug dope.

Some have expressed concern about the length of the hike, so we will hike out for 1-1.5 hours, and then return.  Last year we had to head back anyway because with the gradual incline there was snow that was hard to walk through.  It'll be a moderate hike.

 

Meetup at Otto's place at 11:am and we will carpool to the trailhead 11:15 sharp!

    I just was informed that I'm having out-of-town guests show up, and while I'd love to drag them with me, they're just not up to hiking. :( I'm going to have to try again later.

    Beverly had to cancel, since her foot is hurting. The hike is still on with an option of taking a different trail. We are still meeting up at my place ( "Otto's")

    at 11:00 am. leaving 11:15 sharp. We will carpool to Hatcher Pass.

    I have company visiting and want to take them on the Gold Cord Lake trail. It's shorter and will be easier on my bad leg. Both trails are in Hatcher pass so you can decide which one you want to take when we meetup. A replacement for Beverly as group leader is welcomed but not necessary. The trail is well marked.

    After the hike I'll fire up the campfire at my place for those wanting to bring something to grill on the fire. Or we can chip in and pickup a few things.

    Open to suggestions.

    Cya On Sunday

    Sorry, I have to cancel. My foot has been aching mysteriously for 3 days now, so I'll play it safe and do sedentary activities on Sunday. Hope you all have a good time.
