This is a primitive trail that heads east from FlapJack Lakes. It ascends between Mt. Gladys and Mt. Cruiser with a wonderful panoramic view of Hamma Hamma valley. You will need a backcountry permit.

An unforgettable experience. Definitely not an easy hike, but the divide is worth the elevation gain. Make sure to reserve camping in advance at Flapjack lakes or Donahue creek. We hiked up in the morning, made a base camp at Donahue creek, and hiked up to the divide in the evening followed by a morning hike up to black and white lakes the next morning.

Access Gladys Divide by way of Flapjack Lakes. The view of the Hamma Hamma valley is amazing!
