Mount Garfield – 2024-06-15

Destination: Mount Garfield
Trails: Mount Garfield Trail
Hike Date: 2024-06-15

Very popular hike. Slightly muddy. 3 stream crossings—all rock hoppable. COLD even in the middle of June—very windy so didn’t stay long at top.

Used sticks part of the time but more useful down and since there is a bit of rock scrambling to get to the foundation of the old fire tower put them away at one point.

Trail Maintenance:
No blow downs but some serious widow makers on the trail.

Parking & Road Access:
Parking is TINY and tight. If you don’t get there before 8 you’ll be parking on the side of the road in a ditch. Be mindful of which side because one side parking is prohibited.

Lovely hike but LONG. Galehead hut is 3.5 approximately from summit. Overshadowed by the rest of the views on the other Presidentials. Relatively easy hike.
