This will be a moderate hike with gradual elevation gain. Plan is to head out to Ship Pass overlook and back, will take about 5-6 hours since snow in the valley will probably be deep. Snowshoes will be needed.
My pace will be pretty slow but usually we get some fast hikers that know the trails and forge ahead.
Dogs welcome if they can handle deep snow. Bring the 10 essentials plus good windlayer, lunch, headlamp just in case. Snowshoes can be rented from REI and AMH if you need. Poles and waterproof pants recommended. Parking at Glen Alps is $5 or have pass. Best to have snow tires and AWD to get up/down road.
If forecast is very windy I will change the venue so check this posting day of hike.
