Details

After hiking to Crater Lake, we’ll pick our way S. with a brief stop at Clayton Lake. Continuing off trail, the group will turn W. and climb steeply to Iceberg Lakes and lunch at the base of the Continental Divide. Upon our return to a saddle, we can admire all four Crater Lakes before descending steeply off trail into the Crater Lake drainage. Pick up the trail and loop back to the cars. This hike contains steep ascents and descents, as well as talus scrambling, boulder hopping and bushwhacking. Plan for a long day with a stop after the hike. NO TIGERS PLEASE!                                            



Notes

Last year, this trip was done in reverse of what the description says above with great success; depending upon the weather and the overall hiking conditions will dictate what direction we travel. As usual, if early snows come into the area, expect a different hiking location to be announced or a possible trip cancellation!
