Snowshoeing Reflection & Louise Lakes (Intermediate) For Peeps Attending 1/11/14

  • Dec 21, 2013 · 8:00 AM
  • Ravenna Park and Ride

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

NOTE: THIS IS AN EVENT FOR PEOPLE ATTENDING JANUARY 11TH, 2014

I will schedule another event for everyone else

Let’s head down to Mt. Rainier for an intermediate snowshoe. The plan is to start at the Narada Falls view area parking lot, make our way up to Reflection and Louise Lake and then head up to Mazama ridge for great views. Note the elevation gain.

DETAILS: It is a 7 mile round trip, considered more difficult with an elevation gain of 560 feet.  Highest point is 6100

IMPORTANT: Will re-schedle trip short notice when avalanche rating is high

"This trail stays right along the edge of timber line, making it one of the most spectacular routes for snowshoers in Mount Rainier National Park. The trail provides a wonderful experience in a winter forest, the chance to visit a frozen alpine lake, and subalpine meadows in which to play and soak up the scenery."

    That initial hill was the most difficult thing I've put my body through in about 50 years. Satisfying to have done it but painful. The company made the difference. Couldn't have done it alone. Thanks so much Gabi for another very memorable experience.

    I saw the big caps 1/11/14. My mistake for not carefully reading the rest of the thread ahead of time. I have other plans I cannot get out of. Everyone have fun!
