Mt Massive Camping Advice

Post by gonefishing05 » Wed Dec 02, 2020 11:02 am

Hello,

I was wondering if anyone can recommend a camping location this time of year on Mt. Massive's East Ridge route. Id like to spend a night up high and get some mileage out of the way. Thanks.

There's any number of decent spots in between treeline and the CDT intersection.

There are lots of flat areas just below treeline right about where you head over towards North Massive. See the .gpx and map in my TR and you can see where my track goes to N Massive.

This looks like a fun route I'll have to try this winter.
