Details

Please notify leader in advance of any medical issues or concerns.



By signing up for this trip you agree to have your e-mail shared among other participants who may want to carpool.



Meet in the parking area at the Peru Creek turn-off from Montezuma Road.  From there we'll carpool up to the trailhead as parking is limited.  The trail is mostly well-worn, steep in a few places, and there is one major stream crossing which should be do-able if you have trekking poles.  About .1 mile before we get to the lake there is some class 2 rock-hopping.  Be prepared for strong wind and changing termperatures.  We will enjoy lunch at the lake and then return the way we came.
