Details

This hike begins at the Tanglewood Creek trail head and gradually climbs to a saddle along Pegmatite ridge. The bulk of the elevation gain we do on this trip is covered over the first 3 ½ miles, so expect some tough steep sections. From the saddle, we’ll then descend approximately 300’ in 1 mile to Roosevelt Lakes where we can finally enjoy lunch. Our return trip involves only 300’ of elevation gain, but having just finished lunch, it might feel like a thousand feet!

Notes

We all made it to the lakes. There is a new trail to the top of the pass. 

Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
