Low snow doesn’t stop the winter hikes

Posted on Monday, February 8th, 2010 by »

Freinds of Scotchman Peaks Wilderness 2010 Winter Hike Series continues to draw hiking enthusiasts in spite of the low snow pack. Volunteer hike leader Judy Hutchins took half-a-dozen folks on a 7.7-mile, low-altitude walk around Fatman Mountain at the south edge of the wilderness on Saturday, Feb. 6, and reported that a good time was had by all.

The lack of snowpack in the lower elevations has been a deterrent to snowshoes and skis, but folks headed for higher elevations have hauled their snowshoes and found some excellent ‘shoeing up higher.

More to come! Look under the “Hikes” tab at the top of the page.
