Details



From Long Lake TH in Brainard Recreation Area by Ward take Pawnee Pass Trail to Lake Isabelle then ascend Isabelle Glacier Trail to a moraine of boulders at Isabelle Glacier. Upper trail has boulder fields, stream crossings and possible snowfield crossings. This hike has some rocky parts to the trail and some difficult stream crossings. 



We will observe waterfalls, flagged trees, tree islands,and geological features in formerly glaciated valley. We hope to identify these features from information given to us from leader/geologist Peter Laux. We do this hike in Peter's memory.
