Did an overnight trip here in late August during the week. Camped at the trailhead the night before and got an early start around 530 am. There were several cars at the trailhead, but there is a lot of room and multiple trails start near here, so not everyone is going to Jade or Marmot. The trail is long and there’s a decent amount of elevation gain, especially between Marmot and Jade. My friend got a little nervous but we all made it up, including my German Shepherd. But if you’ve done a hike like Mt. St. Helens or Camp Muir, then this won’t feel as grueling as those because the relief isn’t as great. We actually camped at Marmot, but next time I’d like to camp at Jade because it’s so beautiful. There was some tp lying around, but not as much as I heard people complain about. Just take a “dirty” ziplock with you and pack out your tp, don’t forget to bring a trowel for #2.★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Hiked with Becca for 4th of July weekend. Got a late start on Thursday and didn’t end up getting to the TH until evening. We camped at Hyas Lake the first night and hiked up the rest of the way to Marmot and Jade Lakes on Friday. Jade was completely socked in when we got up there, so we hiked back down to Marmot and camped there Friday. Fishing was amazing at Marmot. I also saw a few rising at Jade, but I didn’t bring my rod up with me from Marmot. This is such a beautiful area with so many great hikes nearby. Definitely a lot more to explore! Battery died on the way home, so the mileage for this is short by about 10 miles.
