Mt. Pierce, Mizpah Hut – 2022-05-10

Destination: Mt. Pierce, Mizpah Hut
Trails: Crawford Path, Webster Cliff Trail, Mizpah Cutoff
Hike Date: 2022-05-10
 

Conditions:
The Crawford Path trail was mostly dry (some mud) for the first 1.5 miles. Spikes were needed up until the summit, which was bare. Post-holing minimal.
The Webster Cliff Trail was mashed potato snow with a monorail. Lots of post-holing.
The Mizpah Cutoff Trail was more of the same. Loose snow, post-holes, and breaking snow bridges. We were happy to meet back up with the Crawford Connector to get away from the snow.
Great hike, great views, clear skies.

Equipment:
Microspikes were necessary after the first 1.5 miles on the Crawford Path; totally necessary for the Mizpah Cutoff and Webster Cliff Trail. Snowshoes may have helped on the Webster Cliff Trail.

Parking & Road Access:
Parking lot was open.

Comments:
The bugs are out but they’re not biting yet!
