Re: Question About Matthieu Lakes Area

We were just there July 4th and the mosquitoes were pretty bad! We were day hiking and kept moving, so doable. Talked to overnighters that said they were bad. But right now the snow is just finished melting out in places, so they are always worse then. Benson Lk / Scott Mt was even worse, as there w...

Re: Goat Lake Loop (Goat Rocks) - July 11, 2015

This is the second time lately that someone posted something from 2015. Was wondering why? I ran into a couple of different parties up on Vista Ridge a couple of weeks ago that had read the re-posted report from 2015. They hadn't notice the date and thought it was a currant post. They were very disa...

Re: Laurance Lake High Loop (Oct 15)

Just wanted to give an update. We tried going up to do the Laurance Lake High Loop today and the road was closed right at the first little retaining pond, before you get to Laurance Lake. I checked the NFS website when we got home and it was posted: "Date(s): Oct 24, 2017 Laurance Lake Road has been...

Re: Trout Lake Big Tree – Wicky Creek Shelter Loop 05-22-16

Do you know how many miles you hiked to do that loop? Also the elevation gain and loss?
Thanks for the post. I have only been up in that area for cross country skiing in the winter.

Re: Badger Lake Loop hike - Rookie Mistakes Were Made

I was up on 4410 going to High Prairie this weekend and the road is still snow bound up until approximately 2 miles from the TH. Definitely late winter, early spring like conditions up there as yet. Saw some Glacier Lilies, Mt Hood Wind Flowers and Trillium all just starting to bloom a bit lower on ...

Fall Colors?

Just checking in to see if anyone is still finding some nice fall colors out there.

Re: Highline Trail (Glacier NP) 6.18.15

Gorgeous pictures! You must have an amazing camera. I am looking for a new one, but need a small point and shoot. That is one of my favorite trails in GNP. Although there are so many fantastic ones to choose from. I love staying at Granite Park chalet and then hiking down to Many Glaciers and doing ...
