DescriptionHike N from the Scott Paul trail to the Glacier (6200'). Continue to the high camp at 6250' then skirt the rock Prow to the W and continue N to below a small horn on the Sherman Crater rim half-way between Sherman Peak and the Roman Wall. Continue to the summit via the Easton route. Alternative is to head East from the end of the Railroad Grade until reaching the Squak Glacier.
LocationDrive WA State Route 20 (the North Cascades Hwy) E or W to approx MP 82 and turn N onto the Baker Lake Road (FS Road 11) following it for 12 miles to a major Y in the road. Take the left-hand fork (FS Road 12) and follow it just over 3-1/2 miles to another junction. At this junction take the right hand turn (FS Road 13) and continue slightly less than 5-1/2 miles (or as far as conditions allow) to the TH at roads end. A Forest Service parking pass is required on all vehicles (at the TH).
The route can be reached via the Scott Paul trail or by traversing right (east) from the end of the Railroad Grade.
