Description

This will be a loop hike of approximately 6 miles with a gain of 1,200'. Much of this hike will be off-trail in likely deep, untracked snow. At times during the descent of Glacier Creek we will be, quite literally, on thin ice. Snowshoes are required.
From the Glacier Gorge Trailhead, we will reach Mills Lake via the "winter trail". The South Glacier Knob is above the lake and to the left. We should be able to reach the summit without taking the snowshoes off. Our descent route back to Mills Lake will differ slightly. At the lake, we will descend the Glacier Creek drainage passing over Glacier Falls, "Roberta Falls", and Alberta Falls. We will exit the drainage somewhere below Alberta Falls and continue back to the Glacier Gorge trailhead on the standard trail.
