Even in lousy conditions, the long, difficult hike to Seymour Mountain in the Seward Range is super rewarding.

 Seasonal Notes for Seymour


Even in the warm months, hiking the Sewards is a serious undertaking that should only be attempted by strong hikers with good backcountry skills and robust mountain legs.

Once the snow hits in the cold season, a gate at the west end of the only access road for the main trailhead is closed, preventing car access until the spring thaw. Winter hikers must therefore walk in an additional 3 miles to the trailhead, adding a total of 6 miles to days that are already 15 mile minimum days.
