Island Rainbow and Mason Lakes
Michael E. Baker
Change: We will not be going to Island Lake. The new total distance is approximately 9 miles. The total gain based on today's hike is around 2700 feet. Another change, we will be starting up the trail before 9:00, will coordinate directly with the hikers. Another pretty hike off of I-90. We owe this nice trail to Ira Spring. Read about him on the web. http://www.historylink.org/index.cfm?displaypage=output.cfm&file_id=9356 We will be checking out three pretty lakes, Mason, Rainbow, and Island. The total distance is approx 10 miles with an elevation gain of approx 2500 feet. The wild flowers up near Mason Lake should be very pretty. We will start up the trail at 9:00 and eat lunch at one of the lakes. Meeting time and location(s) will be e-mailed to those who sign up, the week before the hike.
