      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Mowich Lake

Recommended Posts

Has anybody been up the Mowich Lake road recently? The Nat'l Park Service web site says the road is gated at Paul Peak. Is this information current? Has the road melted out enough to justify taking mountain bikes to ride the road to the trailhead?

Haven't been there this summer to see it yet, but they usually keep it gated at Paul Peak until the ENTIRE road is snow free. They sandbagged us last year and said it was open (while at Paradise), after the long drive around-it wasn't! GRR.

I think they opened the gate July 15th or so last year. On our hike in (July 9) the road was snow free until the last half mile or less of road. And there was the tire tracks of the ranger truck who dropped the rangers who did Ptar ridge in a day...

So I'd bring your bike if going out soon, just have decent knobbies!
