Car pool from Tumalo Coffee. Trailhead is at Three Creeks Lake. 8 - 10 miles R/T, 1300 - 1500 vertical, depending upon whether we go down to No Name Lake (see photo). Steady up on the way in. One steep pitch with switchbacks. Some cross country travel and navigation practice across the plateau on the way back. There is no water available on this hike; carry at least 2 liters. I recommend no dogs due to the walking surface, but it's your call.
Hike is 9 miles, 1900 vertical feet. Not recommended for dogs due to leash requirement and footing. This will give us some great views above tree line without needing to do the awful, horrible, terrible top section of the South Sister summit climb. Bring 2 - 3 liters of water.
Note: This hike is on a Tuesday. 10.5 miles, 1500 vertical feet on a section of the PCT from Santiam Pass. A few switchbacks, but nothing too steep. This hike will give us a great view of the west side of Three Fingered Jack. Several nice viewpoints along the way. No water is available; bring at least 2 liters.
