Camp Muir Trail Professional Review and Guide
"This is a very steep hike through Paradise Snowfield up to Camp Muir, the most popular base camp used by climbers. From Camp Muir you can see Mount Adams, Mount St. Helens, and the Tatoosh Range in amazing panorama.
The hike with the greatest elevation gain included in this book, Camp Muir affords you views of other regal cascades, Mount Adams and Mount St. Helens, a panorama of the jagged Tatoosh Range, and an up-close look at the glaciers and ridges traversed by climbers on their way to the summit.This hike reaches an elevation of 10,080 feet, which feels like the top of the world. Expect an intense workout, because this hike gains 4,680 feet of elevation in 4.3 miles. Bring plenty of sunscreen, and apply it on all exposed skin. Make sure you apply some under your chin and nose and behind your knees to protect against the sun’s rays reflected off the snow."
