Still heavy patches of snow 5 miles in. We probably could have mushed through it to the top but the snow and thunderstorms moving in got us to turn around.

Had to turn back due to snow about 3.5 miles in. Very beautiful and remote. Will try again soon and update.

Phone was running out of charge, so only recorded the trip one way up the mountain and down into the valley. Elevation gain is no joke compared to the Whitewater trail (which was closed due to fire). Jefferson park is breathtaking- definitely worth the slog up!

Hiking into Jefferson Lakes park - many great views. The trail has a modest elevation gain before a short descent into JLP. I hiked out of the park via Whitewater Creek trail to Craig trail, crossing the Breitenbush River on a log & back to the trail head.
