most of this hike was in the snow for us. Having a gps with the trail maps on it sure came in handy.

Hard to find, but definitely worth the effort. Mt. Higgins Trail is unfortunately one of the endangered trails in the state of Washington, and because of that, getting to the summit is difficult. We crossed Dicks Creek once, but couldn't find the trail again after that point. If you attempt, keep searching for that trail...
