THIS HIKE IS FULL, BUT YOU MIGHT CALL ME TO BE PUT ON A WAITING LIST. Probably my second most favorite outing I lead for the SMI, is the Crest Loop. It’s beautiful, strenuous, challenging, and so much fun. Amy Voeller will be my co-leader on this event. PLEASE plan on being out all day. Several of these have expended after dark. We will meet at the Super 1 in Athol at 5am , and leave at 5:15 sharp. For those wishing to stay at the trailhead, we will meet up with you at about 6:45. The first leg is an easy 2.5 mile hike to Harrison Lake. After a snack at the lake, we will head around the south side of the lake to start our scramble to the crest. Once on the crest, we will hike south to the summit of Peak 7171’ for our first lunch with a view. Then it’s off to a few more Seven Sisters summits. When the group is ready, we will drop down to the high alpine meadows between Harrison Lake and Little Harrison Lake. This meadows is a dream walk out to L.H.L. After enjoying one of my most favorite lakes, we will scramble up the ridge between L.H.L. and Beehive Lake. On the ridge top, with incredible views of the American Selkirks, the Cabinet Mountain Wilderness, Northwest Peaks Scenic Area, and the Pack River drainage, we will have our second lunch and a nap, before heading down to Beehive Lake and the trail back to the cars. THINGS EACH PERSON MUST HAVE WITH THEM: 13 essentials, two lunches, trail snacks, very sturdy boots, hiking poles, clothing for all weather conditions including rain gear. This hike/scramble is limited to 8 very hardy scramblers. If you need to pull out of this hike, please let me know as soon as possible so I can offer your slot to the next person on the waiting list. PLEASE CALL ME AT 208.659.8183 WITH YOUR INTEREST TO ATTEND. For more images of past trips to the Selkirk Crest...log onto..
