Snowshoe with the Dogs at Mt. St. Helens - Marble Mnt - Beginners
- Response has been slim to the snowshoes. If the response doesn't increase I will stop posting on this site. Feel free to join NW Wilderness and my hikes and snowshoes which are dog friendly.
- Sno-Park pass required
- I got lost and found this trail on Mt. St. Helens. We will be walking on a paved road that is snow covered and NOT plowed - Think Trillian Lake on Hood with NO people. It is a steady climb but very manageable for beginners. Not much to see like June Lake but great views of Mt. St. Helens if the sun is out.
- There is a wash out area that we will need to cross to get to the trail. Last year the group crossed it with no problems with help getting off and on the log. I'll post a photo of the log so you can decide if you want to come. I am going to guess that it is 5 miles. It is an out and back hike.
- This is a SLOW snowshoe. We will be going around 1 MPH a little faster on a way back but still slow to enjoy being outdoors.
What to bring:
- Snowshoes (we will not stop to rent snowshoes so please come prepared)
- Rain gear (or snow pants and a rain jacket)
- One or two extra warm layers
- Hat, Gloves (2 pair of gloves)
- Waterproof boots
- Gaiters to keep snow out of your boots.
- Trekking poles
- Something to sit on
- 2-3 liters of water, hiking snacks, ten essentials, non cotton clothing, sun screen.
