VIEWS! This day hike exceeded expectations. Plenty of water along the trail this day in early Sept. Saw a mountain goat, marmots, and pika, etc. A lot of full sun exposure, so come prepared for that. Stopped at Sahale, did not feel comfortable crossing to go to Quinn Sabe.

Awesome hike! Some patches of snow here and there but nothing requiring any equipment. The views all along the hike were stunning, switching from one side of the mountain to the other. I totally recommend it! We were planning on going to the camp but it was in the clouds so we stopped at 7000 feet. The view was already amazing!

Hike 10.31.16 breathtaking views even from the parking lot! Made it all the up the switch backs and started on towards the pass up to the glacier but started to snow heavily and came ill-equipped so turned back. Car camped along the road back. Truly beautiful and will be back this summer!

Challenging but rewarding at every turn. The view from the base of the glacier was the best I've ever experienced.

Awesome, rocky summit with 360 degree views of the Cascades. Probably one of the most breathtaking summit views in the Cascades. Met a few fellow climbers on route that completely agreed. Prepare for glacial travel and have the proper equipment. The last pitch to the summit is relatively easy bouldering, but the route is is a bit more challenging. Beware the crevasses! Glissading down the glaciers was also a great time (and quick way to get down). I suggest the crevasse self-rescue courses that are offered using Boston Basin. Very cool and fun learning experiences. Did this last summer... it was incredibly hot once you were off of the glaciers. So, check the weather and prepare accordingly if you plan to camp before summiting.

When fishing in doubtful lake in august or
early September use a small black fly with
white thread and orange hackle.
