    Had perfect fall weather, so we had awesome views of the Pacific Northwest! Mt.Baker, Mt Rainier, and the nearby Olympics peaks. We are two women in our 60’s and we had no trouble with this hike. We will do again and again. There are many people on the trail and also many dogs. Get there early for good parking

    Lucked out with the weather. Go early, take plenty of water and layered clothing. Was windy and chilly at the top. Trail in great repair!

Mt Townsend snowshoe
Solo snowshoe up Mt. Townsend. Beautiful sunny day. There was an inversion layer that made it warmer today. Busy day, I must have seen 30 people. I was the first vehicle to the upper trailhead, but a couple passed through the parking lot from the lower trailhead while I was getting ready. Icy for the first couple miles on the trail, slipped on my butt when I didn’t have my Yaktrax on. Tested new snowshoes, poles, and gaiters. All worked great! The snowshoes felt light, and had good traction.

Mount Townsend (12/31/18)
Beautiful day from upper trailhead. Micro spikes the whole way. Carried the snowshoes. Did not need them. Great views of Canada, Mt Baker, Glacier Peak, Mt Rainier, Mt Adams, St Helens. Seattle in the clouds for much of the trip.
