Lanham Lake Snowshoe
Well the winter is full on and the Holiday season is wearing down on everyone’s wallet.
So take a break and burn off some calories with a relaxing snowshoe up to the scenic Lanham Lake.This Lake is one out of hundreds of scenic lakes within our Cascade range.
Located off the Steven pass highway are many of these lakes scattered out across the range.
Lanham lake is a rather easy hike (if you’re a hiker) or (Moderate if it’s been a while), 3.2 miles round trip with 1100 feet of elevation gain.
We will do Lanham Lake then come down have a lunch some place to be dicussed as we frolick in the snow.
This lake is high attitude and the snow will be deep so the snowshoes are mandatory for this trip.
We’ll meet at the Everett train depot northwest parking area. then carpool out to the trail head. Trail head parking requires a yearly national forest pass or a day pass for each vehicle.
Please let the group no if you have one of these and if your willing to drive when you RSVP.
Please Read the following Link on the lake description.
Rain, Snow or Sunshine this trip will be scheduled, only high winds will postpone this trip.
Require items to bring,
Clothing that works in rain and snow (No jeans please).
Boots or good soled shoes (No tennis shoes)
10 essentials: Please have this stuff or at least begin to set up your pack with it for future snowshoe trips.
Just because you don’t think you’ll need it, some day you’ll use it on a friend or someone else on the trail.
