Sand Flat Trail/Overlook Loop Trail

Sand Flat Trail/Overlook Loop Trail

Sand Flat is an obscure trailhead at 6,830 feet that gets very little use. It’s only access is off the Everett Memorial Highway, just before Bunny Flat. There is an “upper” and “lower” Sand Flat road and either can be used to get to the trailhead. The trailhead is closed and covered in snow for a good portion of the year and usually is opened in May or early June or whenever the snow melts. It does not add or subtract any significant mileage or elevation from the start of your climb. It’s a trailhead used more so by hikers later in the season looking for an alternative trail for hiking adventures on the south and west sides of the mountain. The trail joins the Horse Camp trail approximately 1/4 mile before the MS Wilderness boundary.
