Autumn is in the air! Waterfalls, fall foliage, and pristine alpine lakes - what's not to love. Oh, and there are mushrooms, lots of mushrooms; just about every color and variety imaginable await you on this spectacular walk in the woods. Note that, snow conditions permitting, we will be hiking to Surprise Lake, Glacier Lake, and Surprise Mountain. If we are able to hike to the peak, our total mileage for the day will be 15 and our elevation gain will be 4200'. This is a very strenuous hike. We will be hiking at a brisk pace, so please do not register for this trip if you are not comfortable hiking at this speed.
