Yosemite Glacier Point Snow Camping
by oruwu on Feb 15, 2010
Yosemite West, California, United States
Snowshoeing | 23 miles
For my first snow camping experience, this trip to Yosemite proved to be educational and fun.Driving up on the day after Valentine's Day was moderately calm due to the lower volume of drivers during the winter. We took the road up to the Badger Pass Skiing Area and got out of the car to a brisk sunny day. Sunglasses were a must, and it felt like the start to any summer trip,...

Gold Creek Snowshoe Adventure
by loosenut on Feb 24, 2008
Hyak, Washington, United States
Snowshoeing | 6.7 miles
We picked a great day to go snowshoeing. There was a bunch of fresh snow on the ground, and once we got out far enough, we hardly ran into anybody. The scenery on this trip was excellent, especially toward the end. We had lunch on a giant snow-covered boulder that provided an excellent view of the valley.

Cub Lake Loop, Rocky Mountain National Park
by jimlarkey on Jan 11, 2011
Estes Park, Colorado, United States
Snowshoeing | 6.6 miles
Cub Lake Loop is a good acclimation hike for newcomers to Colorado.  The trek is fairly short, the elevation gain modest, and it's a loop...no repeat scenery.I've been in the area before, Tour de Lakes ™ , Fern Lake Trail, but had never been to Cub Lake itself.  So this was a bit of a discovery trip, particularily with the near zero temperatures and gusty winds that found their way into the...

Ludlow hut return
by mattleonard on Dec 31, 2010
Rubicon Springs (historical), California, United States
Snowshoeing | 5.3 miles
New Years Eve 2009/2010 trip. 2 of us on snowshoes, 1 on skis. Too us about 4 hours to arrive at Ludlow Hut, 3 hours to get out the next morning. We parked near the Rubicon OHV trailhead, asking neighbors if it was ok to park on their property. Otherwise - parking is a few miles further at the state park, or supposedly at Homewood ski resort (and using their free shuttle)Pretty...

Midstate trail from Rt12 to Muddy pond
by Thwoodman on Feb 26, 2011
Ashburnham, Massachusetts, United States
Snowshoeing | 4.7 miles
  Walked south from Rt 12. Narrow but well blazed trail with no fresh tracks (human tracks that is but plenty of Coyote, Fox, Rabbit and Bobcat). After a mile and a half the trail briefly merges onto an unplowed road then turns South to the Muddy pond shelter.

Round Valley Loop - Mount San Jacinto
by scubaairpig on Feb 25, 2012
Desert View, California, United States
Snowshoeing | 5.3 miles
When you find yourself at the top of the tram, you might think, "now what?"  Well the Round Valley Loop is a great trail which will show you much of what the park has to offer.  As this trip is on snow shoes, some of the hike takes you off trail, so be sure to avoid cutting switchbacks.  Also avoid walking across the Meadow, as meadows are fragile ecosystems which need protection....

Montgomery Pass Snowshoe
by jimlarkey on Jan 30, 2009
Willey Lumber Camp, Colorado, United States
Snowshoeing | 3.8 miles
This is the best 2-mile (one-way) hike in the area that yields some great views at the Pass.  The Montgomery Pass trailhead is across (west) Hwy 14, with parking at the Zimmerman Lake Trailhead.  2-seater out-house, with plenty of parking, and well plowed and maintained through the winter.The trailhead is at 10,000' and you will climb to 11,000' at the Pass.  You will be rewarded with some great views of North Park...

Flattop Mountain (12,324'), Rocky Mountain National Park
by jimlarkey on Nov 28, 2010
Fall River Estates Subdivision, Colorado, United States
Snowshoeing | 8.2 miles
Flattop Mountain (12,324') is not a popular destination in the winter.  The summit is on the Continental Divide, well above treeline, with exposure to the prevailing north & westerly winds that howl during the winter.Fortunately, we began our snowshoe in bright sun, blue skies, and no wind.  By the time we reached the summit, a front moved through, and we encountered the typical challenging winter conditions.Flattop is a popular summer hike, with...

To Pear Lake Hut, SNP
by ejobshop on Apr 02, 2012
Sequoia National Park, California, United States
Snowshoeing | 18.8 miles
From car to Pear Lake Ski Hut and back. About 6 miles each way, but very long uphill climb to get to the hut (about 2000' up, from 7400 to 9400). We're not experienced snow-shoers, but are in decent shape... still took us 6 hours to go 6 miles. We got a bit lost at the end trying to find the hut: you can't see it, even when you get close, and...

Mt St Helens: Worm Flows
by kepPNW on Feb 15, 2013
Cougar, Washington, United States
Snowshoeing | 10.0 miles
Climbing Mt. St. Helens on a crystal clear sunny day in February may be the best possible way to spend a day out in the wilderness! Hard to imagine a more stunning and fulfilling experience.  Or one that's much harder.  (The last two miles to the summit gain nearly 4000' vertical feet!)  Of course, it all depends on the total cooperation of the weather gods.  Thankfully, everything came together for us, this...

Hyak Snowshoe Adventure
by loosenut on Jan 20, 2008
Snoqualmie Pass, Washington, United States
Snowshoeing | 3.9 miles
We bought some lift tickets and the lift dropped us off near the top of Mount Hyak. We snowshoed all the way to the top and went down the backside. We stopped at the giant electric power pole, then made our way down through the forest. Before we got to the main nordic trail, we noticed some strange poles in the middle of the trees. The trees all around were...

Gold Greek Redux

Hyak, Washington, United States
Snowshoeing | 7.5 miles
Another beautiful day at Gold Creek Basin. The snow was in good condition, even though it started to get a bit slushy toward the end of the trip. We explored a side trail this time, which meant skirting the creek a few times. We ate lunch and turned around in a large open area with an ancient tree.

Sugar Pine Point State Park - Yellow and Orange snowshoe trails
by Vaudesir on Jan 01, 2010
Glenridge Park, California, United States
Snowshoeing | 4.3 miles
I like being able to hike on New Year's Day. This year, I was in Tahoe, and snowshoeing was the way to go. After Meeks Creek the day before, I decided to explore a small part of the Sugar Pine Point SP. Reading the "Tahoe Snowshoe Trails" guide book, it seemed that I would be able to hike both the Yellow and Orange trails.It was snowing (the wet kind of snow) when...

"Tour de Lakes ™", Rocky Mountain National Park
by jimlarkey on Jan 30, 2010
Fall River Estates Subdivision, Colorado, United States
Snowshoeing | 11.7 miles
I was honored that a true Mountaineer shared his leadership and experience in this creative, and challenging trip.....and I was a part of it!  I've facetiously added a trademark to "Tour de Lakes" to emphasize the individual creativity of this biennial trip that has been enjoyed by CMC folks for almost a decade.  It represents 3100' of ascension in snowshoes, with a very unusual profile.  Unlike most mountain trips, the middle of the...

Meadow Mountain (11,632'), Indian Peaks Wilderness
by jimlarkey on Apr 01, 2010
Allenspark, Colorado, United States
Snowshoeing | 6.1 miles
I can't believe we got turned around on the summit, and began to descend the west slope, instead of the east slope! Fortunately, I checked our track on the GPSr, and quickly got on the correct slope down. But we had to go back up to the wind-blown, cloud-immersed summit to take another look at the orientation of the radio antenna and shelter.  It seemed so strange descending by instrument, when our...

3 day snowshoe trip to the summit of Mt Lassen. Started at the southwest entrance to the park, generally following the road covered in 16' of snow. Camped near Lake Helen close to the summer trailhead to Mt Lassen.Next day had a wonderful summit day to Mt Lassen, snowshoed all the way to the summit. Rapid glissade down the mountain back to camp. Snowshoed back out the next day.

Joe Mills Mtn (11,078') - Mt Wuh (10,761') Traverse, RMNP
by jimlarkey on Dec 05, 2010
Fall River Estates Subdivision, Colorado, United States
Snowshoeing | 8.0 miles
A class 2 scramble for a 1/4 mi. is part of the fun in reaching the summit on the south slope of Joe Mills Mountain (11,078').  Named after the "father" of Rocky Mountain National Park (RMNP), Enoch Josiah "Joe" Mills, it's a nice off-trail climb to do in winter or summer.The weather was nice, and in between fronts, so we chose to do a traverse to neighboring Mt Wuh (10,761'), and then...

Ypsilon Lake (10,540'), RMNP

Fall River Estates Subdivision, Colorado, United States
Snowshoeing | 8.9 miles
Nestled at the foot of one of the CCY's (Mt. Chapin, Mt. Chiquita, Ypsilon Mtn.), you'll be invited to come back and do the CCY climb in the summer.  We chose to stay low, and do a snowshoe to Ypsilon and Chipmunk Lakes.As you ascend the Lawn Lake Trail, you see the scar of the Roaring River cut.  In July of 1982, the Lawn Lake Dam (elev 11,000') ruptured, sending a flood...
