Description: There are several choices of 3-5 mile hikes, including a 3 mile RT hike to Housethief Basin Lake- maybe a sunset wildlife viewing around the lake. We were thinking of preparing a family-style pot-luck dinner on Friday and Saturday night, so we will send something out once people sign up. The cabin has two bedrooms and a loft for two people, one bathroom, electricity, and hot water. This event is limited to paid members. See Membership and Dues.
Difficulty: Easy if you do a few hikes, maybe 6 miles over the weekend.
