This event is currently full. Please contact Tyler Nyman if you would like to be placed on the waitlist. Meet at 8AM at the Fernan Ranger Station in Coeur dā€™ Alene. We will drive approximately 1 hour east to the winter parking area on Willow Creek Road south of Mullan. The winter route adds about a mile of snowshoeing one way along the forest road before reaching the official trailhead. From there, it is another 2 miles of steady uphill travel to the lower lake. Another half mile will take us to the upper lake, where we will have great views of Stevens Peak at the head of the valley. We will retrace our route back to the parking area. Round trip distance is approximately 7 miles with 2,200ā€™ elevation gain. This outing is best suited for physically fit hikers, due to the steady uphill travel with potentially deep snow. High avalanche danger or inclement weather may cancel. Contact Tyler Nyman for more information. Please note: the Spokane Mountaineers are following current COVID 19 guidelines. At the time of posting, the plan will be to drive separate vehicles and practice social distancing during the hike. The group size will be limited to 5 participants plus the activity leader. These parameters are subject to change in the future.
