Day Hike - Greenwater Lakes


Day Hike - Greenwater Lakes

Join us on a leisurely trek up to Greenwater Lakes. This hike is full of splendorous views of water features and old growth cedar forest. This hike is not for those who like to rush, it's an excellent opportunity to move at a leisurely pace and there will be plenty of time to stop for photography and observation of plant and wildlife along the trail.
