Title: Twin Lakes Road, Winchester Mountain
Post by: stoked on 01/11/19, 11:59 AM
Wondering if anyone has driven up this way recently and can share road conditions. What with the scant low elevation snowpack, I'm wondering how far up the road can be driven off Hwy 542.

Usually WSDOT plows a berm right at the junction with their maintenance lot.

Ah, so we'd have to dig through it. Assuming there's any snow left at that elevation. Can anyone confirm?

Drove to KM 2 today (January 20th). Snow starts there at 900 meters ASL. Continuous snow beyond.

Currently, it's snowed in down to the highway.

Can anyone weigh in on which is the better approach to Goat Mountain? The logging road that crosses Swamp Creek off Twin Lakes road or trail #673 off the Hannegan road? I did trail #673 on skis some years back but we had to carry quite high to where the first slide alder patch is. Wondering about the logging road. Is it overgrown? Which is better?

I’ve done it both ways.  Definitely prefer summer trail.  Pretty sure it’s a bit quicker.
