Silver Star / Grouse Vist page

Post by robertjoy » March 5th, 2015, 2:05 pm

It would be nice if the Silver Star via Grouse Vista TH page were updated.
Also the same comments would clarify the situation on the Grouse Vista TH page.

FEES: Discover Pass required. Not available at trail head. Purchase online at 1-866-320-9933.
(display Permit Number which Ranger can verify)

I haven't bought a Discover Pass, so I just want to clarify - do you mean purchase by phone at that phone number? And then you write the permit # on a piece of paper or something and stick it on your dash until you receive the actual permit in the mail?
Will hike off trail for fun.

Sounds unlikely. Especially given they're tied to a specific license plate.

Digging a little... Ah... http://discoverpass.wa.gov/faq.aspx

Your pass should arrive within 7 to 10 business days. You may print a temporary 10-day pass at the time of purchase from the website or by your e-mail.
Maybe call that number, and ask directly?

Back on the trail, again...

That's EXACTLY how it worked when I bought a day pass via phone at the Columbia Hills trailhead a couple years ago: I was told to write a number on a piece of paper and put it on my dashboard.

I updated the Grouse Vista permit info in the FG to make this more clear.
