Ascent Trip Report

I camped out at Nash Fork with my friends Jamie & Oscar, and their two dogs, Booker & Hattie. We did a loop from West Lake Marie trailhead. It was very windy all day, and there were clouds moving through all day, but it did not rain. There weren't too many people on the trail. When we got down from the mountain and down to the Lewis Lake/Lakes Trail junction, I climbed up Sugarloaf while Jaime & Oscar headed back to Lake Marie. I have been wanting to get up to the Snowy Range for a few years, and I am glad I did.
