15 viewsThis plateau is a destination (and camping area) in itself. We encountered hikers who hiked the 2-3 miles to this point then turned back. After sludging through the waist deep snow near the 4 mile mark, I don't blame them!

26 viewsI didn't take many pictures of this area, but this shows what it is like- despite having the trail mapped out on our GPS (from our hike down from Mt Chas last July) the trail was IMPOSSIBLE to follow, and we resorted to hiking straight up through the snow. I would not recommend this trail to anyone for the next few weeks unless you bring snowshoes- I'm not kidding.
