Location

Meet: Monday 6:30am Woolley Mammoth lot(I70 exit 259) Section HH

Trip: Starting from the Echo lake trailhead we will take the standard on trail route to visit the upper and lower lakes in the mount Evan Wilderness. The Chicago Lakes are extraordinarily scenic. The first lake is tucked away in the back of a steep glacial valley with thousand-foot granite cliffs plunging down to its eastern shore. The second lake rests 400 yards further south above a 300-foot wall of broken cliffs and steep grassy slopes.

Pace: Will average 2-2.5mph with fewer stops than normal.

Due to my last minute scheduling this trip will still go unofficially, if I don't get enough sign ups.
