Trail Conditions

Trail snow-covered at times - gear and expertise recommended

Tried to drive to Packwood lake and turned around. Unless you have a serious vehicle to drive through a large amount of snow, it will be difficult and you will get stuck. We got stuck twice, in a Subaru forester with chains. The crosstrek that helped us get out are today's true weekend warriors. Thank you!

Thanks for the update. We were shooting for a hike here Thursday but I guess we’ll look at something different.

Whew, glad you got out safely. Good to know about the snow on the way there.
