  • Easy/Moderate
  • Moderate
  • Mileage: 6.3 mi
  • Elevation Gain: 2,000 ft
  • High Point Elevation: 5,300 ft
  • Pace: 2.0 or adjusted to group's desired pace

Due to Covid-19 no carpooling, so 830am meeting time at Exit 54 on North Side of I-90, near parking for Kendall Lakes trail.  We will drive from there to the trailhead.   

Based on a WTA trip report from June 12 depending on snowmelt in the 2nd half of June there may be too much snow to reach Lake Lilian safely, so Mount Margaret will be the likely destination.   About 6 - 7 miles total roundtrip length and 2000' of gain, depending on whether we explore part of the Lake Lilian trail toward Twin Lakes.  Please bring microspikes in case snow remains on the upper portion of the trail.  Also suggest bring bug repellent in case the mosquitos have hatched.
