Avg Rating: 3.00
Sherman and Snow Mountains
I hiked to Jungle Hill from Sherman Pass and not the Jungle Hill Trail head. This route is shorter and with less elevation. From Sherman Pass head north on the Kettle Crest Trail (#13) for about 4 miles. There is no trail to the top but it is easy to find a route up on the south side. The trail has been cleared and is in great shape.
Flowers are just starting to bloom and the views are great.
Ran into twelve people on the trail (that is about as many as I have ever seen on a week day) plus a youth trail crew from the PNTA doing tread work.
As always the Kettles are a great place for quiet and solitude.

Diablo Lake Trail (Apr 17)

Diablo Lake

North Cascades

Follow the Diablo Lake Trail up and across talus slopes on the flanks of Sourdough Mountain to impressive cascading waterfalls and stunning views. This hike in the North Cascades Institute's backyard makes a great option for an early season hike in stunning North Cascades National Park, much of which is inaccessible during the winter and spring.
