Mt Washburn or Avalanche?

Post by Mike W. » Fri Jun 29, 2018 12:57 am

I'm not a hardcore hiker let alone a backpacker, although I did do rim to river and back in a day at the GC a few years ago. But what is the better hike, mostly visually, between Mt Washburn and Avalanche Peak? They seem similar in terms of length, vertical rise and peak elevation, but which one is going to give me the bigger Wow factor?

Can't answer your question, as I haven't done Avalanche. However, it's important to note that the park service just sent out a notice that Washburn is going to close for the rest of the season (maintenance and repair projects) around the beginning of July. Not sure if this affects your plans.

Since I'll be there in mid July it might, though not in a big way. Just what I plan for a day.
