Hi,

I'm planning a hike linking these peaks via the Beaver Meadow Trail and the Scenic Trail. Should I hike it clockwise or counter clockwise?

Thanks,

Makes no difference really, but If it were me, I'd go up the Scenic and down Beaver Meadow. Many reasons I could cite, but most are personal preferences and probably wouldn't mean a thing to you.

It's a pretty steep up on the Scenic (I prefer steep up to steep downs) and the Beaver Meadow puts you out farther along on Lake Road, thus saving a little a bout a mile of the walk along the mind numbing Lake Rd. when it counts (at the end of a long day).

I will be doing Saawteeth, Pyramid and Gothics on June 4th. When will you be up there?

I'm not sure of when I will do the hike.

I'm wondering if I should use the Weld trail or the Scenic trail? Any opinions on that?

I am going to climb the Weld Trail, summit Sawteeth, climb back down Sawteeth and head over to Pyramid and then Gothics and climb down the back side of Gothics and then out to Lake road. :)
