Big Springs Snowshoe
If we get lucky and still have enough snow, we will take advantage of our Chemeketan trail maintenance efforts that successfully restored the Big Springs Snow Park. We will piece together a number of recently opened trails to do a mostly flat easy snowshoe. I have several loaner pairs of snowshoes and poles. Call ahead to reserve. Plan on stopping on the way home for a bite to eat.
Driving distance: 160 miles RT.
Snowshoeing distance: 5 miles RT.
Elevation gain: 100 feet.
Qualifying Activity: Yes
Registration is not Required
The trip leader is the event coordinator. The Trip Leader has the final say over who may participate in the event.
Due to the extra effort involved with wearing snowshoes and walking through snow, the ratings for snowshoe trips are different than hiking Trip Ratings:
EASY: Maximum 5 miles round trip, elevation gain less than 500 feet
MEDIUM: 5-7 miles round trip, 500-1000 feet elevation gain
HARD: Over 1000 feet elevation gain, over 7 miles round trip
