Please join us for a hike up to the Kendall Catwalk on the PCT, and then on to Ridge Lake. The elevation gain is about 2700 feet. The pace will be moderate. The trail is very well graded and in good condition. The weather forecast at this time calls for a chance rain. In the fall be prepared for any kind of weather, including the possibility of near freezing temperatures at the top.
