Matthieu Lakes Followed by Gentle Hatha Yoga

Matthieu Lakes is an easy to moderate hike in the Three Sisters Wilderness. This loop trail is approximately 6 miles. The hike will take 3-4 hours depending on group pace. We will stop for lunch at South Matthieu Lake. Post hike we will head over to Sawyer Park for an hour of gentle yoga to stretch and soothe our achey muscles and joints. Highlights: Two beautiful blue lakes and views of Middle and North Sister, Mt. Washington, and Mt. Jefferson. Please bring your 10 Essentials, incl. sunscreen, layers and plenty of water. Bring your yoga mat (I have four extras, please let me know if you need to borrow one).

**Please no pets or young children on this hike.**

Meetup etiquette:
1. Please show up on time. We will leave at 8:15 sharp.
2. The group size is limited to 12 people. IF you sign up to join this meetup PLEASE show up!!! By not showing up you are stealing. You are stealing from another person, by taking their opportunity to join the hike. Please remove yourself from the Meetup if you will not make it.
3. Enjoy this beautiful place that we get to experience.
4. Before posting/taking pics of group members make sure that they are okay with having their pic taken/posted.
5. Be prepared.
6. Your driver probably wouldn't complain if you pitched in for gas.

    Hi Autumn: So I just returned from unsuccessfully trying to find you at Starbucks. I am new to Bend (just moved this week) and drove around for 30 min trying to find it, and did not have any contact #s for the group. When I finally did find the Starbucks, it was already 8:25 at that point and I did not see the meetup group. What a bummer. Please call me at[masked] as I would very much like to still do the yoga portion. Thanks, Lisa

    I'm so sorry to have to back out at this very late time - almost midnight. Have a family emergency I must take care of. Enjoy!

    I will bring driving directions for our drivers tomorrow. Please remember proper footwear, layers, snacks/lunch, 10 essentials. Remember no pets on this one. Thanks everyone!!! See you in the AM

    I'd like to bring my husband, Jeremy. Is that ok with the group organizer?

    August 14, 2014

    • Alma

      I've unfortunately developed a cold over the last 2 days, so my husband and I won't be able to make it. I've changed my RSVP to "no" and hopefully someone from the waitlist can join. Thanks for organizing, and hopefully I can make it next time!

  • Karen

    I don't see where my request posted. My mate would like to join us. Is that possible?

    August 23, 2014

  • Abigail A.

    I'm also going to bow out for tomorrow. Have fun!

    August 23, 2014

    • Autumn A.

      Have a great weekend Abigail. Can you please remove yourself so someone on the Waitlist can join? Thank you!

    I'm still planning on meeting you at the trail head. I look forward to meeting all of you, and to reconnecting with Moon.

    Hello hikers, just a friendly reminder about our hike tomorrow. We'll meet near the Starbucks in Cascade Village at 8 am. Please remember to update your RSVP if your plans have changed. I will be driving a white Subaru with a Thule roofbox. See you bright and early!

    I was hoping to have the pergola built in my yard but now I see it will take today and tomorrow to finish it. I so wish I could go with you all but I better stay focused and get her done.

    Thanks for letting me know.

    Are dogs allowed on this hike? I have a well mannered Labradoodle

    August 21, 2014

    • Autumn A.

      Please don't bring your pup on this hike. I love dogs and have two of my own, but since we're following it up with yoga I think it's more appropriate to leave them at home for this one, so they aren't locked up in the car or tied to a picnic table, etc. during yoga.

      August 22, 2014

  • Autumn A.

    Hello fellow hikers and yogis. Please remember to update your RSVP if you won't be able to make it to Sunday's hike. Can't wait to meet you all!!!

    Do you know if I'll need a Northwest Forest Pass for my car?

    August 14, 2014

    • Autumn A.

      Yes. You will need one

      August 14, 2014

  • Paula S.

    Since I live in Sisters, why don't I just meet you at the trailhead. Will I need a Northwest Forest Pass?

    August 14, 2014

    • Autumn A.

      Paula, yes you can meet us at the trailhead. We will be there by 9:30, possibly a little earlier.

  • Nora M.

    how long do anticipate this event to take?

    August 14, 2014

    • Nora M.

      Oops, I should have read the description closer :)

      August 14, 2014

    • Autumn A.

      I would plan on a full day. The drive to the trailhead is about an hour each way, plus 3-4 hours hike and an hour yoga session.

      August 14, 2014

  • Nancy

    Looks like a great hike.
