Scheduled Hikes & Events

Snow Flat to Hospital Flat
May 20, 2017
Easy Moderate

As you enter Snow Flat near the lake, an old Jeep trail marked by a "closed to motor vehicles" sign marks this hike.  Follow the road uphill as it lead into the trees.  After a quick climb, the road levels off and arrives at a junction 0.4 miles near a campsite.  Continue to the left.  The road turns south and travels through mixed conifers and towards Treasure Park.  Keep and open eye for wild turkeys and deer.  They are abundant in this area, but rather elusive.

At 1.2 miles, the trail enters the largest meadow on the mountain, Treasure Park.  Make sure to locate the interpretive sign on the east side of the meadow explaining the history of this spot.

At the bottom of the meadow, near the road junction, cut up the hill and continue west.  You will soon find an old logging road. You can continue either direction and find Hospital Flat.  Just watch for the Forest Service sign denoting the trail if you go north.  An interpretive sign near the restrooms in Hospital Flat shares history of this area.

You can continue up through the meadow on the west side of the campgrounds to the road and then  0.1 mile on the road to the Grant Hill Loop trail system.  Follow the trail (road) to the left for .25 mile to the junction with a road to the left.  This road will take you back to Treasure Park on an alternate route.  Then you can retrace your steps back to Snow Flat.
