Hike across the Stillwater Plateau
Hike across the Stillwater Plateau to overlook Wood Lake. We will drive up past the Benbow Mine to the Golf Course which is just over 9,000 ft. The hike is about 6 miles across the Stillwater Plateau to the Wood Lake overlook with a 2100 ft. elevation gain. This is one of my very favorite hikes, however, we must have good weather. You will have to take water for the day. I wouldn’t count on any streams. Compass and a gps are recommended. No one should hike alone. The trail exists only for the first mile. After that it’s pretty good hiking with intermittent boulder fields. Everyone should have rain gear and sun screen. I love hiking on the plateaus but the down side is exposure to the storms. This is a spectacular hike! Both Mount Wood and Mount Hague are over 12,000 ft peaks and come straight down to Wood Lake with over a 3,000 ft. vertical drop. I want to leave early. Would people strongly object to leaving at 6 am. My photos from 2016: https://www.facebook.com/jim.powell.585/media_set?set=a.10210333997376391&type=3 Dan has offered to drive his trusty 1986 Land Cruiser. He is a good driver and has nerves of steel. If someone has walkie talkies they would be good to take along.
