The McGregor Mountain Trail begins at High Bridge 11.1 miles west of the Golden West Visitor Center along Stehekin River Road. This trail climbs nearly eight miles northeastward to the summit of McGregor Mountain, 8,123 feet. The trail is considered very strenuous. Hikers should check weather and trail conditions at the visitor center before attempting this trail.
Park at the High Bridge parking area and cross Stehekin River Road to the trailhead. The trail begins by climbing immediately then the gradient lessens a short distance before a fork in the trail at Coon Lake. It is one mile to Coon Lake with an elevation gain of 600 feet.
Beyond the lake the trail makes a few short switchbacks then begins the climb in earnest. During the next six and a half miles the trail climbs steadily up the western flank of McGregor Mountain. It follows the Coon Creek drainage to its head then turns southward to the summit. The last half mile of the trail will require rock scrambling on hands and feet.
Directions: From Stehekin, Travel westward on Stehekin River Road 11.3 miles to the trailhead at High Bridge. Cross the river road to reach the trailhead.
Elevation: 1,590 feet
