Trip Report

In order to get to Titkana Peak (my objective for the day), I first had to hike to the Snowbird Meadows and perhaps Snowbird Pass. Considering the number of people that must do this hike each year, I was quite surprised to discover how few trip reports are out there on this relatively easy peak. I think part of the problem for most folks is how far the hike to Snowbird Pass is (over 20km return) and as it turns out - how much bloody work it is! The views from the pass and the approach are so good already that I think most people are content to turn back at the pass rather than continue up Titkana.

Thanks for this. We head up this weekend and had it in our plans to spend day 2 trail running all of Snowbird Pass, Mumm Basin Loop and Toboggan Falls. With most of those closed this month due to landslide activity, this gives us some distance to add to our Snowbird Pass plan. Great images - you were lucky with your weather. Thanks
