    Keren Gu reviewed Snyder Lake Trail

    about 3 years ago

    Did this trail around mid-June on a year with warm winter so all the snow on the trail were gone. The part of the trail that is shared with Sperry trail (the first 1.8 miles) has a nice elevation and good view of Lake McDonald. The second 2.6 miles of trail is rather muddy. If you plan to spend any time at the lake, definitely bring insect repellant. We had bug spray but I would still categorize the amount of insects in the air as unpleasant.

    Cracker lake is a popular backcountry camp site. The scenery is beautiful and lots of wide life around the lake. Sunrise is the most amazing at the lake so definitely stay overnight if you can make it happen. There are only limited 3 campsites and permits are required.

    Keren Gu reviewed Iceberg Lake Trail

    about 3 years ago

    Went in early June and the end of the trail was mostly snow covered. Lots of icebergs floating in the lake and the sound of icebergs breaking away from the mountain echoes throughout the lake. If you pay attention to the surrounding terrain, you might be able to spot some mountain goats.

    Keren Gu reviewed Monroe Skyline, Lincoln Gap to Appalachian Gap

    about 3 years ago

    We hiked this trail southbound starting at the App Gap in May. We arrived around mid-day and planned to stay at Glen Ellen Lodge. Having only vaguely heard of the Glen Ellen Lodge, we simply assumed that it would be around Mt Ellen, so, off we went for the midpoint. The ascend from the gap was steep from time to time, with ladders and rebars. Once we saw the first ski lift, it was mostly ridge walking from then on. Somewhere along the way, we completely missed the sign towards Glen Ellen Lodge (3.4 miles from App Gap), which would have been too far north to pitch camp anyways. Missing the lodge was OK because Mt Ellen also hosts a ski lift with a warming hut about 50 yards down from the peak. It's a large lodge that can sleep at least 4 people. On day one, we didn't see a single living soul on the trail. Day two was more ridge walking until Mt Abe, at which point we started seeing more hikers, and then downhill from then on.
