Does anyone have a route that they could post for this snowshoe trail. I thought someone had posted a pic of their route from their GPS but I can't find it.

I'm pretty sure you are recalling the trip report from JimK last winter.

I'll PM you.

In spite of losing the trail after the metal power lines it's really pretty easy to follow the diamonds on the trees all the way to Nordic Pass. From Nordic Pass it's just a romp up the ridge to Mt. Catherine. It seemed like there was a trail on the south side of the ridge, but that might have been the tracks that were already there...

Moosefish, in case you did not know, the Nordic Pass trail continues on down to Windy Pass. There are diamonds all the way to the road. It drops quite steeply beyond Nordic Pass.

I figured it must continue, but we didn't follow beyond the snow gauge. There were snowshoe tracks coming up from that side. How high can you drive toward Windy Pass at this time of year?

It continues to the hut in Olahlee Meadows and continues down the common corridor then down to the Iron Horse.

And this was the part that made skinning all the way there worth it! up.gif  Olallie Meadows was nice too, and great views.

What kind of hut are we talking about?  Open to the public?  Overnight?

Warming hut with fireplace for those who purchase groomed trail passes.

Here's my summer route, that only follows the summer trail; parts of it vary slightly from the blue diamond winter route.Caltop map
