Mt Jefferson via Castle Trail

Trip dates: Saturday, April 28, 2018 12:00 AM

Join us for this early spring hike to the 5,716 foot summit of Mt. Jefferson by the Castle Trail. We will hike at a moderate pace, ascend 4,300 feet and cover 10 miles round trip in about 8 hours. The trail above treeline is rocky and somewhat steep including the Castles which are a series of rock towers that we will scramble around or over as we hike the ridge. Views from the trail are stunning. If you have above treeline experience and like a bit of a scramble, this is a great opportunity to end your winter hibernation and get back into the mountains. Since weather in late April is a gamble, come prepared with microspikes, rain gear, and warm clothing.
