    Matt Brewer reviewed Sky Pond via Glacier Gorge Trail

    9 days ago

    I did this hike with my 11-year old daughter on 6/10. Arrived at the TH lot at 6:30am and got the very last parking spot. This was the best hike we’ve ever done, by far. The scenery is absolutely breathtaking! There was still quite a bit of wet/slick snow for the last mile or so, which made it a bit difficult without crampons. The trail wasn’t overly crowded on the way up, but really got packed on the way back down. The waterfall scramble was a little difficult, but not bad. It was tricky on the way down with so many people trying to get up and down. We were feeling the altitude near the top, but felt fine after a 15-20 minute stop at Sky Pond. My daughter was pretty beat by the end and needed frequent breaks for the last couple miles. I wouldn’t take my younger kids on this one. We took about 7 hours round-trip with GPS showing just under 10 miles. We were fine in t-shirts for 80% of the hike, but threw on hoodies a couple of times when it got really windy. The view looking back at Glass Lake from Sky Pond makes all the work worthwhile.

    Matt Brewer reviewed The Ridge Muscadine-Ginger Cake trails

    over 1 year ago

    Combining the Muscadine with the Gingercake trails is a nice length of 3.5km with about a third of the hike being along the creek. This is a relatively new trail system (opened in 2016) with several picnic areas still under construction. The trails are very well marked. Muscadine is by-far the longest trail, with most others being less than 2k. This is an easy hike with very little elevation change and would be great with kids or dogs. The Ridge also includes a small boat launch for kayaking/canoeing a small section of the creek. That area was closed today due to low water levels. Great spot to spend a leisurely afternoon.
