Details

(optional) After Hike dinner



Hike begins at Echo Lake (10,600) with a 400'
descent into Chicago Creek drainage. View a waterfall cascade between
these two high lakes, which are situated in a basin surrounded by high
cliffs, just north of Mt. Evans. Weather permitting we will break for
lunch and scenery at the awesome upper lake (11,740) which is above
treeline. One of the most scenic hikes east of the divide. (Optional) After hike dinner location TBA.
