    This easy backpack begins by climbing gradually south following the East Fork of Homestake Creek to a large valley above Homestake Reservoir. The plan is to hike approximately 3.3 miles to a location where a base camp will be made up in the valley. Then, from this location, the group will have many opportunities to day hike up to Lonesome Lake or hike over to Isolation Lakes or climb the ridge separating four different drainages or just fish in the lakes surrounding the area. The mileage and elevation gain are merely estimates for all three days, but can and most definitely will change depending on each individual person.


This easy backpack is a "REGISTER WITH LEADER ONLY" trip. If you're interested in this trip, contact the leader for additional details.
The topo needed for this trip is: Homestake Reservoir.
