Meet at the Greenwater Lakes trailhead at 9am.  Must display a NW Forest Pass or America the Beautiful Pass in vehicle that is parked at trailhead.

There is a bridge crossing that requires a big step up, but we will take our time.

We'll aim to keep moving until the turn around spot a little over 2 miles from the trailhead.  Please be flexible as I'll be carrying my 2 year old daughter and may need to check on her if she needs something during the hike.

This hike will be following the Phase 2 guidances that can be found on the COVID-19 Response Page:
