A strenuous climb from the trailhead to the peak of Mount Lukens with the optional bailout.

Chauncey Mize

Description

Starting at the trailhead, you'll begin your climb up Haines Canyon toward Mount Lukens. At the creek washout, stay right and you'll find yourself climbing the Haines Lookout. From here, continue the climb on winding footpaths leading all the way up to Mount Lukens peak.

You'll have plenty of loose gravel, rocks, and even boulders to traverse while maintaining your pace on this steep climb! When you get to the 4.5 mile mark, you can take the bailout, or continue the climb for another 1.5 miles to the peak and take in some fantastic views before descending! Keep the rubber side down!!

Getting forecast...

Upper Haines trail is in good shape. fast & flowy all the way down. Currently snow on the last switchback from the top. 1-13-15 Jan 14, 2016


We did this trail on Christmas day 2016, (wife still mad I left early morning :-( ). Started by the small parking lot below the catch basin and climbed up all the way up to the Antenas. Tough ride, with some rocks on the trail and snow on the last half mile to the top, it was hard pack and easy to ride though. Coming back down we took the old Lukens trail or the blue bug trail and it was a blast. Dec 30, 2016
