day hike - 8 peaks (bumps) around mt ogden via snowbasin
Starting from Snowbasin Ski Resort, we plan to summit eight peaks (bumps) - from north to south - Peak 9061, Peak 9036, Allen Peak (9,465 ft), Mt Ogden (9,570 ft), Floyd Inversion Ridge (9,322 ft), The Needles (9,240 ft), De Moisy Peak (9,363 ft) and Strawberry Peak (9,265 ft). The trailhead elevation is approximately 8,720 ft. So the total cumulative elevation gain is not a lot. Because those peaks are very close to each other, the total distance is not very long. While there are trails to/from the ridge, there is no trail on the ridge line. Needles Lodge, neat The Needles peak, where we may stop by for modern restrooms or a cup of coffee etc., is open during summer. In addition, the lodge at the parking lot is open during summer. Expect bushwhacking, cross-country route finding, and class 2 scrambles on the ridge line. Bring microspikes and 10Es. This hike will be exploratory. Email before Friday, 3 pm, June 28, for the meeting place and time. When you register, please indicate whether you want to meet the group at the trailhead in Snowbasin in Ogden or a carpool meeting place in Murray. Registration priority will be given to WMC members.
