Re: Circumnavigate Mt. Adams

Unless something has changed, which I doubt because it would require an act of Congress AFAIK, that long traverse across Tribal land is open to all hikers during the summer months (I forget the exact date range). You may need to get a parking-related permit from the tribe, and they ask that you only...
