  1. Hey, nice website. Thanks for all the great info. We’re coming to the area in 10 days to spend a day doing a practice hike for a summit walk later in May. Can you recommend a good walk? We’re looking for altitude (some not 14,000!), normal boots not snow boots, about 7 hours duration. Thanks.

    • Most of the longer, steeper trails still have some snow on them. For getting a bit of a workout right now, your best bet are the Castle Dome and Black Butte Trails. They will at least give you some fairly significant elevation change. You can also head over Parks Creek Pass and hike the trail up to Bear Lake in the Trinity Alps. As I think about it, that is probably the best way to go.
