Crow Pass Day

Wonder if it's ever sunny in Crow Pass-let's find out!

Planning moderate pace to Raven Glacier. From there we can explore the area, possibly split into 2 groups based on ability level....this will be a flexible event depending on moods, etc. Hope to get some great photos of the glacier and wildflowers.

We will travel at least 8 miles and gain several thousand feet in elevation.

Bring: pack, water,bug and bear dope, sunscreen, trekking poles, lunch. Ice grippers will be needed if you are going beyond glacier. I will have kiddo with no grippers so I'll have to play this by ear.

Please state in your RSVP what your expectations are (if any) and this way we can align our agendas up front. Make sure to carpool with like minded hiker.

      Lots of snow in the pass but 100 percent do able on the Girdwood side. I have heard the rivers are raging on the ER side, you could look at Crow Pass FB page for updates

    Best weather I've ever seen in the Pass, just perfect sun with fluffy clouds and nice breeze. My trio ended up being very slow but no one complained. Thanks guys for keeping an eye on Brian, apologies to those he bombed with snowballs!

      I would be happy to even just do the first section, but I wouldn't be able to host I haven't ever been on this trail.

    We hiked the entire route today, and had some wonderful times until the Eagle River side. Lots of flooding and rope/log bridges out with strong current kept us on the trail too long today trying to get through the many streams. I don't reccomend the through hike unless you are willing to stay wet for a long time and don't mind some sketchy waters.

    • Lilli

      Ya, lots of melt all at once now.

    Our sister is visiting and would like to get out, sadly we are working! She is competent although fears she'll be slow compared to Alaskans. If we can get her to Carrs, can she join?

      Of course, we will be a mellow group

    Not sure I will be able to make it. This will be my 4th day in a row of hiking so my legs will decide in the morning.

    Moderate pace to Raven Glacier sounds good. I don't have ice grippers to go any further.

    June 19, 2013

  • Chris W.

    Anyone willing to do entire pass?

    June 17, 2013

    • Janetta

      I would be interested if its a Sat or Sunday

      June 18, 2013

      My schedule this summer is super busy but may have another weekend free for Crow Pass--just not sure yet. I'm still asking around about this Saturday.

    I am super bummed. I wanted to do this trip soooooo bad but my daycare provider is on a jury and now I cannot go! :(

    • maureen

      If your kids are above 7 or 8 ish they would be welcome, this is a pretty neat hike that kids would like.

      June 18, 2013

  • sue

    I'll plan for glacier and back, and play it by ear. :)

    My apologies---I am on wrong date. I was thinking on Saturday. Sorry Maureen!

    June 17, 2013

  • Chris W.

    Plan on about 12 hours or more. River crossing reports are knee deep to mid-thigh

    June 17, 2013

  • Jenn S.

    At least to to glacier and back, but I would be up for more if other would like to keep going too.

    June 17, 2013

  • maureen

    I will most likely hike just to glacier and back but if there isn't much snow I'd consider hiking farther into backcountry.
