10:00 AM at Wapiti Wollies store in Greenwater
This is a beginner backpack for those of you just getting started. The backpack goes to the Greenwater Lakes near 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 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. Please be prepared for rain - just in case. The trip signup begins June 16. 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 are 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 are an experienced hiker, sign up as a co-leader and provide needed assistance and instruction. This beginner backpack supports the Basic Backpack Class, June 1 and 8.
