Lantern Creek / Picklejar Lakes Trail

August 25, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

The Lantern Creek Trail is the official route to the Picklejar Lakes, a very popular fishing lake that's also popular with backcountry campers. Friends volunteers are helping hand-build a new portion of trail that is approx 3km (60-90 minutes) from the parking lot. This section of trail will replace the eroded steep section of trail - shown in the below picture.










Meeting time: 9:00am (9am – 4 pm)

Meeting location: Lantern Creek Day Use

What to expect: There will be a 60 - 90 minute hike to the locations that need to be worked on. The level of effort will be moderate/medium and include rerouting and rebuilding some sections of trail - mostly pulaski and rogue work, with some removal of dead fall and maybe a few rocks to be moved.

SIGN UP HERE - Sign up closes at 12pm on the day prior to the event.
