Default Mt. Henning - snowshoe - March 16/21

A fantastic day on Mt. Henning, thanks to Ingrid for the inspiration.

For this trip took my car, sunny day and a clean dry highway.... over 110 km 1 hr 10 minutes to reach Britton Creek Stop.

Plan was to follow the snowmobile road which was nicely groomed, and a few snowmobiles were active in the area.

Late start almost 11 am, we followed our winter camp route and snowshoe across behind RMOC old winter camp site, across snow-covered creek and met up with the skiimobile road... headed south, and found sign: Mt. Henning, and followed that all the way up. 14.3 km return with 880 cumulative meters elevation gain.

Spent a good long lunch hour on top and returned shortly after 5 pm.back to the car.

A fine enjoyable drive home, feeling the exhiliaration of the day

walk onto Tolumeen FSR, then short walk into Britton Creek Rest Stop. some people do not park there for fear of theft.
We parked there today, and all was fine.

I remember hiking around that area years ago and I came across an old miners log cabin.
