Dome Glacier

Dome Glacier Professional Review and Guide

"Rarely seen Dome Peak is the monarch of the Cascade Crest north of Glacier Peak. The Dana and the Dome, two large glaciers north and west of the peak, offer excellent spring skiing amid spectacular scenery.

The glaciers are crevassed, but easily negotiable. The approach to Dome Peak is long—18 miles to the glacier—but its variety alleviates some of the misery of the hike and, in early season, snow cover makes for rapid downhill travel. Downey Creek Trail had 100 tree blowdowns across it in June 1998. Difficulties: High avalanche potential; glacier travel; routefinding required; permit/fee area."

The Suiattle River Road #26 was washed out at milepost 14.5 near the Huckleberry trailhead and milepost 21 at the Downey Creek Bridge (the bridge is not accessible). A temporary and rough road fix was done near the Huckleberry Trailhead. Fording of Downey Creek is NOT recommended for hikers or stock. Suiattle River Trailhead is inaccessible due to the washout of the Downey Creek Bridge. Several sections of the Suiattle trail (#784) have been washed away or are slumping into the Suiattle River. The trail is inaccessible to stock.
