10:00 AM at the town of Greenwater
We'll meet at the Wapiti Wollies store in the little town of Greenwater at 10 am. We'll gather there and drive together to the trailhead. The hike to the lakes is about 2 miles on a good trail with moderate uphill. The greentrails maps for this trip are Greenwater #238 and Lester #239. We will camp at the upper lake on Saturday, and do day hikes to other lakes, time permitting. Check the weather forcast and bring necessary gear. I've contacted the clubhouse to release the carpool information by 1:30 on Thursday so you'll have time to make arrangements. If you're lacking either a stove or water filter, there should be enough to share. Also, iodine tablets can be used in place of a water filter. If you’re hiking with a friend, sharing of a tent is encouraged to make best use of tent space. If you have any questions, contact me, Len Anderson, at or 360-681-4984 or 360-808-0689.
