This is a one night backpack. We will drive to the trailhead on Sunday evening to get an early start on the trail on Monday. This is a joint outing with Rock Creek Alliance and Save Our Cabinets. These organizations are dedicated to protecting the Cabinet Mountains Wilderness from proposed copper and silver mines beneath the Wilderness. This backpack will take you into an area of the Wilderness that will be impacted by the proposed mines. Information will be provided about the mines, potential impacts to the Wilderness, and what can be done to protect the Wilderness. Rock Lake sits in an amazing setting surrounded by towering peaks. The hike in to Rock Lake will take you past Rock Creek meadows and a large waterfall where you will see the remains of a former mine. We will hike up to Rock Lake on Monday morning and pitch our tents there. On Monday afternoon, we will take an off trail route to St. Paul Pass along an idyllic mountain stream. We will explore the area around the pass which offers some of the best views in the Inland Northwest. Group size limit of 8 backpackers.
