Kendall Katwalk & the Lakes

  I thought I would wait until this was totally melted off- BUT, I am running out of hiking days and wanted to hike this one again this season.

   Mileage: approx 15.6 RT to lakes and back
   Elevation gain: approx 2700'
   NW Forest pass for each car

This trail is part of the PCT and was blasted into the rocks.  The trail is narrow in sections and the drop offs can make you dizzy.  Be realistic about your abilities. We will not be turnng back.   It is a steady climb but over that many miles and the scenery, it doesn't seem so tough.  This time, I want to hike past the Katwalk and to the lakes, which we did not do last year. (this adds 3 more miles to the 12.6 to the Katwalk).  Be prepared for a LONG day.  Bring all you need to stay safe and hydrated.  You may want to bring poles and traction devises.
    As always, read the guidelines, state that you will follow them and then RSVP with your YES.  We do not need to know you aren't joining us.

   Directions:  From I90, take exit 52. Go left under the freeway and make a quick right into the parking lot.

    This hike was doubly nice since we got to also trek a portion of the PCT. Thanks Casey for posting this one. Should be on everyone's bucket list.
