Fagin's Snowshoe/Ski Amabilis Mountain

This a great ski or snowshoe; also a good workout! About 15 miles east of Snoq Pass at the Cabin Creek Sno Park. At the top there are great views of Mt. Rainier. Snow was soft on the way down and should be the same this weekend. Just skied Thursday 3-14-2019. Snow was packed enough some folks just hiked with micro-spikes not snowshoes.

Near the top with views north

Trail stats: 11.5 miles roundtrip and 2100 foot gain. We did some extra skiing I think it would be a total of 10 miles without the extra. To start walk over the overpass over I-90 then start on Berg route for short distance and then follow signs up to Amabilis, to the right. This is FS 4822 and we took to the top. There is a fork at 2 miles along this road and we kept to the left (although you can go right as well this is a loop). Here is our track. If one wants to do a loop you can see near the high point of our trip there is a road that goes due west and that would complete the loop.

Driving Directions:
From Seattle take I-90 east to exit 63/Cabin Creek
Turn right and park in Sno Park. You will need a pass.
