Beat the weekend crowds by starting on a Friday morning!  We will hike past both Greenwater Lakes, setting up camp just beyond the second lake.  After camp is set up, there will be an optional side hike up to Echo Lake - a worthwhile adventure for those who are feeling ambitious.  All vehicles will need to display a NW Forest Pass or equivalent.
