Three day backpack with camping at Flapjack Lakes.  Flapjack Lakes lay side by side just below tree line at the base of the Sawtooth Range. Community bear wires are available at Flapjack Lakes.  There are vault toilets at Flapjack Lakes.

On day 1, we will hike from Staircase to Flapjack Lakes and setup camp.  On day 2, we will do a day hike to Gladys Divide and/or Black and White Lakes.  On day 3, we will break camp and hike back to Staircase.

I obtained a wilderness camping permit, and each participant will need to pay $16 for their share.
