Short Notice Hike - Lake Solitude/Twin Lakes Loop - Friday Night

This should be a great evening hike.  There may be some snow left, but most of it should be gone.  We will meet at the Big Cottonwood Canyon Park and Ride at 5:45PM to carpool up the canyon to Brighton.  We will leave the parking area at 6:00PM.  We will hike around Silver Lake and up to Twin Lakes, over the saddle and down to Lake Solitude, completing the loop back at Silver Lake.  This will be a moderately paced hike with about 1400' vertical climb and a total distance of about 3 miles.  There may be some areas of snow when we cross over into Solitude, but very minor - you will not need microspikes.  It will probably cool off after the sun starts to set, so bring a light jacket, water, a headlamp or flashlight (just in case) and some insect repellant.  The moon will be almost half, so we should get some light from the moon.

After the hike, we will mingle at the cabin, share treats and drinks.......BYOB and something to share.

See you then!!!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
