Loch Leven Lakes Snow Exploritory Hike

  • May 12, 2013 · 8:30 AM

Andrea and I are going to hike up to Loch Leven Lakes Sunday morning to explore how low the snow levels are. We will be scouting the area to see how high we can go for future backpacking without having to sleep in the snow.

If snow level permits, we will hike to the lakes and back 7.2 miles with about 1350 foot elevation gain, and maybe make a few stops on the way home to see how other trail heads are doing with the lack of snow this year. We are interested in backpacking to Five Lakes Basin soon, snow permitting.

If you would like to join us, call Jeff K at[masked] to make meet up arrangements. We'll be leaving Jeff's house in Carmichael/Fair Oaks area about 8:00 or 8:30 am.

    This whole area is clear. It was a beautiful day as we laid on the rocks in the sun over looking the lakes. There were even some young whipper snappers that swam out to the island. It is officially Sierra hiking time.
