Mount Forgotten

Per person cost $20-$25 per person (assuming gas for 3-4 persons)

The meetup will appear full for manual control -  add yourself to waiting list, and I'll pull you in depending on fit for mountain/team. 

Here are pictures from a recent trip report:

1. This is not a technical climb, but a physically demanding hike and scramble

Our typical hikes are around 8-10 miles round trip,[masked] feet elevation gain, and mixed terrain scramble to a peak.

2. What to Bring (required list)

Headlamps
10 Essentials
Snowshoes
Ice axe
Microspikes

You must be prepared enough to stay overnight in winter incase of emergency. For a full list of equipment: see

http://www.firstemall.com/epeaks/

3. Time -keep full day free

4.Slow Hiking speed - I go at a  very slow pace - If u are faster, u have to slow down or carry more weight. 

5.Carry cash for carpool -the group charge $0.50 per mile divided to each occupant.

6.Weather Permitting - I avoid hiking in the rain, which is difficult to do in this place. 

7. Dinner: this is a long day - we will have dinner and then get back.

8. No drifters:

Please sign up if you are going, no drifters please. A pattern of drifting or last minute cancellations will naturally put u on any organizers block list.

    Great company- didn't realize we covered 3820ft gain, and 10 miles. Bushwhacking, long windy icy trail, crossing large fallen trees, creek crossing, deep snow - the adventure we wanted. Kudos to Ben for breaking trail.

      Hi Monique, your guess turned out to be true.. there was waist deep snow starting at the ridge (near the lookout before the meadows).

      November 9, 2013

    • Monique B.

      Hope you had fun! I went up Goat (Baker's Goat) today, 2 ft powder at the meadows. It was beautiful!

    The weather was excellent, the team a perfect blend of happy hikers. I couldn't have wished for more. Good people, good hiking, good camaraderie. Thank you Ashwin - you put together a winner.

    tempting, very tempting. I have a thing in Bellevue at 7pm though so I would need to have my car handy.

    November 8, 2013

    • Ashwin

      7pm is risky - we will be slow..

      November 8, 2013

    • Kerri

      Yup, I'll bike from North Seattle to sodo return instead tomorrow. Enjoy!

    Arg! Sorry I can't make this!

    This is a great hike. The forgotten Meadows are very pretty with new snow. Be warned the path across the saddle from the meadows might be hard to find in the snow.

      I should have the gps track from last year.

    Since it gets dark earlier and it is a longer drive and hike,, I was thinking we meet 6AM. I will change to 6AM - let me know if that does not work for any of you..

    I am coming in from the North - Camano Island, if anyone needs a ride.
