This backpack takes us up the scenic Fish Creek Divide, with an option for a side trip up to the summit of Thunder Mountain, before reaching our final destination of Skookum Lake. Skookum Lake once was the site a drive-in primitive campground, but the storms in 1996 washed out the road, and the campground at the lake is now only accessible via trail.
At this time, there are no passes required.
WHAT TO BRING:
Due to the nature of this event, a full, required packing list will be provided to the Eventbrite registrants at a later date.
** PLEASE NOTE: Ambassadors are not wilderness first aid certified. This is a casual get together for shared outdoor enthusiasts. Safety is a top priority; please plan accordingly.**
