Pete & Spectacle Lakes


Backpack - Pete Lake

This trip was originally set up for Tacoma Backpacking Course so there will be students on this trip but all else are welcome to sign up after 4/19/2021. This is a really pretty lake that is good to swim in. And I may bring a floaty!

To be announced

The lake we will camp only requires a 4.5 mile low elevation hike in/out and it is a good swimming  lake!  The stars over this lake at night are really nice.  We will just hike in, set up camp, and maybe do a short hike in the afternoon on the first day but my main hope is that it is good swimming weather and we can all just enjoy camping out and swimming at the lake.
