MT MAGNIFICANT

Hiking the ridge starting at mile high trailhead to summit at 4285 feet. The total elevation gain is about 2300 feet. This is a great ridge hike even if you don't summit !
Total mileage is about 6 miles round trip and will probably take around 5 hours.

We will start hike at 10 am for those who want to meet at trailhead

    This was a great hike ! We hiked the spine ridge going over its various points including the Alaska flag point and on to Magnifaicant. We hiked up the spine to the narrow point peak just before the true summit.The typical route goes up the steep scree slopes on the north side. We were unable to do this due to slushy slippery snow with ice and loose scree underneath. Kathoola ice grippers did not due well on this surface

    Were you able to summit? Wondering if enough snow melted to make it to the true summit

    I plan to be at trail head. Likely to be competition for parking spaces there. Outcome could influence my participation in Ptarmigan Hike following day.

    Catherine, this hike is currently scheduled to last only 3 hours, from 9:15-12:15. You may be posting with a mobile device (iPhone?) that's defaulting to 3 hours, so I suggest tweaking or removing the end-time before you post events. See my email for further info.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
