New Meetup: Pamelia Lake Backpacking Loop

From: Molly

Announcing a new Meetup for The Bend Hiking Meetup Group!

What: Pamelia Lake Backpacking Loop

When: August 7,[masked]:30 PM

Cascade Village in North Bend
Bend, OR 97701

We will meet to carpool to Hwy 22 just past Marion Forks and then down a forest road to the trailhead. Let me know if you will be joining us later in the day and need directions to the trailhead. Sullivan's Central Oregon Cascades book is a good resource for this. We will camp Friday night at Pamelia Lake which is an easy 2 mile hike in. If the thunderstorms are back again then camping at the trailhead is also nice. Saturday morning we will hike up to Milk Creek for a scenic view of Mt Jefferson. We then join the PCT up to 3 high alpine lakes where we camp for the night. Expect a few mesquitos and snow drifts. Hiking poles will be useful in the snow. This is a great area for exploring. On Sunday morning we will continue on the PCT down to Hunt's Cove and then back to Pamelia Lake completing the loop. It is then 2 miles out to the trailhead. Don't expect to get back to Bend until evening. Please come prepared for 8 mile days with elevation gain and side trips. This trip is for experienced backpackers only. Dogs are allowed on leash only. We will all need permits from the Detroit ranger station. They are free but in very limited quanity. I could only get 7 permits. Two of these may be used by Eugene hikers that will meet us there. This is a very scenic area at the foot of Mt Jefferson. We will need to follow bear precautions such as hanging food, bear canisters and/or odor proof bags. If the weather turns out to be like last weekend with thunderstorms than we will camp both nights at the lake and do the loop as a long day hike. The drive to the trailhead takes a little over an hour but all good roads. Please do not bring guns.
