Beginning at Watrous gulch, follow the trail east then north to above timberline. Climb Woods Mtn. (12,940’) and follow the ridge west over Mt. Machebeuf (12,805’) to Herman Lake where the group can finally enjoy lunch. Our return to the cars will be by way of the Herman Lake Trail. Wildflower enthusiasts will find many species of wildflowers along this route, so don't forget to bring your cameras! Also, due to the fact that a good percentage of our day involves hiking the ridge, if "bad" weather approaches, the leader will make the decision whether to turn back or not!                   


Once again, don't forget to bring your cameras not only because of the spectacular views, but also because of the many beautiful species of wildflowers we typically see on this outing!
