Pratt Lake Trail


Day Hike - Pratt Lake

This is a strenuous hike through 3 alpine lakes (Talapus, Ollalie and Pratt). We'll do a loop around Ollalie Lake which will include a short steep section via an old trail. Total mileage approx 11 miles. Elevation gain: 2200 feet. Please sign up only if you have been vaccinated and symptom free. I have been fully vaccinated but if we carpool, I will expect us to be wearing masks while driving. But I generally don't wear mask while hiking in the open, but carry one just in case. We will plan to stay together. I will send details the week of the hike and include tracks/ maps. Please bring: 1. The 10 essentials 2. Sturdy hiking boots 3. Plenty of water and food 4. Gas money for driver if car pooling
