View Full Version : Presidential Range Traverse

05-21-2012, 08:51 PM
Date of Hike: Sunday, May 21st

Trails: Crawford Path, Eisenhower Loop, Monroe Loop, Gulfside, Clay Loop, Jefferson Loop, Lowe's Path, Airline, Osgood Trail

Trail Conditions: Southern Presi's - All trails are easy to follow and mostly dry, although footing is rough in spots. Just a few minor mud spots on the Crawford Path between Eisenhower and Pierce, one nasty wooden bog bridge plank that jumps up like a seesaw when stepped on, watch out for that! Northern Presi's - snow patch left on the east slope of Jefferson, soft snow, no issues, the rest of the northern presi's is dry with the usual boulder rock hopping. Huts are still closed but opening on June 1st I believe. Wash Obs. was open from 8 to 6.

Special Equipment: None

Comments: Very warm sunny day, sunblock needed, the annoying little bugs and black flies were out. Fun double presi traverse with Alton and Kat, caught a killer sunset below Washington!
