Lone Lake is an alpine glacial lake on the Idaho/Montana border. It is one drainage west and similar to Stevens Lakes except it's smaller, higher, and much less used. We'll hike to the lake, then bushwhack our way to the head of the valley and the alpine meadow at the base of Stevens Peak's headwall. This project is the fall clean-up of the few campsites and possibly a little brushing in problem areas. We'll travel light with only loppers and hand saws as tools. Bring long pants, gloves, sturdy shoes, lunch, plenty of water, and clothes for the weather. If you have a favorite pair of loppers or hand pruners, bring them, but the Club will supply everything else needed. The trail is about 4-5 miles RT with 1600 feet of elevation gain depending on where we park. Directions to Fernan Ranger Station: In Cd'A, leave I-90 on Exit 15 (Sherman St). At the stoplight on Sherman, turn left and go under the freeway overpass. The ranger station will be on our right and we'll carpool from there. If interested give leader a call or email so tools and refreshments can be arranged. Lynn Smith
