Mount Slesse Memorial Trail

November 6th 2022


Elevation gain: 994 m, distance 13.7 km. Estimated hiking time: 6-8 h.

A hike that has been on my list for a while. If it is clear the views are supposed to be amazing. Knee-deep snow expected above ~1500 m, near the end, so microspikes are probably necessary, and poles would be beneficial.

Note: not sure about the road FSR conditions, AWD/4×4 with some clearance definitely needed. I will see if I can get far enough with my Subaru, but this may add a bit of extra distance to our day, otherwise we may switch to a backup like Elk/Thurston Mtn.

This will be weather dependent. Currently Sunday forecast 60% showers. If it is pouring rain we will likely switch to a nice more local forest hike as a backup.

Pace will be moderate, not too slow or too fast. You should have the required fitness to do 900 m elevation gain/loss in the estimated time.

Required items: Microspikes, enough layers for nighttime in case of emergency, headlamp, 10 essentials

Recommended: Gaiters, poles. I will have an inreach and bear spray.

Meet for carpool from 3030 Boundary Road at 6:30am.
