Day hike to Sahale Glacier Camp

  • Aug 25, 2012 · 6:30 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

Plan is to hike up to the Sahale Glacier Camp and return the same day.

Please view the following NPS websites for a trail map and current conditions. Suggest waterproof boots, hiking poles, bug spray, sunscreen and the remaining 10 essentials.

Here's a site for inspiration. Their hike was in early August, so we can get a sense of what to expect.

Park & Ride Info:

The off-ramp for the S. Everett Fwy Station P & R is on the left off I-5. It is probably the most convenient for those coming from Seattle and Eastside, there is also a express bus route 510 from Seattle reaching there at 6:31AM. Hope this works for all.

Driving Directions:

From Marblemount head east on the Cascade River Road for 23 miles all the way to its end at the trailhead (elevation 3600 ft). You will follow the Cascade River the whole way; it takes nearly an hour on Cascade river road. The last half can be rutted and primitive depending on how much maintenance the road has received lately. Privy available.

    I think I was on the waiting list for this, and it seemed like such a remote possibility that I would get to go I made other plans. Was already out of town when the confirmation came. Sorry!

    Weather forecast for Marblemount is Sunny for Saturday! I live on Eastside, will drive and carry 3 others. Yoshi, would you be coming up I-5? In that case we can pick up passengers at an interim point on each side of the lake and meet at Everett south P&R at 06:30. Who is the third driver?

    Anyone interested in carpooling from the Eastside? I can either take 4 passengers with me or ride with someone. Can meet anywhere along the 405 corridor.
