This hike is for July 20, 2010: Sorry for the late posting.
Gothic Basin trail is 3.5 miles starting from Twin Bridges on the Monte Cristo road. If I can't get the gate key, add another mile from Barlow Pass to Twin Bridges. Trail starts around 2,400' and ending around 5,200' at Foggy Lake. Last time I was there remember it being a little steep and real rocky. But what trail in the PNW is not rocky.
Meet at the parking area across the street from the Verlot Service Center at 8:30am (We can carpool from here). Trailhead pass required if parking at Barlow Pass and are available at the Verlot Service Center. Cell phones usually do not work beyond Granite Falls and I do not have one for contacting me. Any questions, let me know.
Reports state snow on steep part of upper trail, basin covered with snow and lake still frozen. Please be prepared for winter conditions.
Green trails maps: Sloan Peak #111 & Monte Cristo #143
