New Meetup: Exploring Hwy 2 - Serene Lake/Bridal Veil Falls Day Hike

Announcing a new Meetup for North End Get Out And Have Fun!!

What: Exploring Hwy 2 - Serene Lake/Bridal Veil Falls Day Hike

When: Sunday, May 9,[masked]:00 AM

Where:
Lake Serene Trailhead
Mt. Index Road U.S. Hwy 2 milepost 35.2 then right
Index, WA 98251

Continuing on the Highway 2 series, about three miles past the Wallace Falls state park exit off highway 2, on the right hand side is the trail head for Serene Lake. There is also a .5 mile side trail about half way up the main trail that goes to Bridal Veil Falls.

This hike, including the side trip to the falls, will be 8.4 miles, and range from 600 feet, to 2500 feet. More of a challenge for sure than Wallace Falls.

I'll be meeting anyone that needs a ride or needs to follow at the Canyon Park park & ride at 8:00am, and will be at the Serene Lake trail head around 9:00am.

I would suspect that it will take about 2.5 hours to get up, and probably 1 hour and 15 to 1.5 hours to get back down. Plus a half to an hour at the lake depending upon the weather, and we could be back at the trail head at the latest 2pm.

Coffee, tea, cocoa, soup available with your lunch at the lake. Bring some water and a cup or bowl and spoon. If you have something else you would prefer to bring, I'll have a stove for heating water.

Pretty close in comparison to Tiger #3 with a skip over to Tiger #2 in distance, but about 300 feet less elevation.

National Park Pass or Northwest Forest Pass required for parking.

Hope to see you there. Let's get out in it.
