WWE PDX – Full Moon Snowshoe to Enid Lake

February 9, 2020 @ 5:30 pm - 10:30 pm



We’ll be headed out for a quick, but beautiful Sunday night, 2.7-mile snowshoe under the winter beauty of a full moon. Enid Lake is a small lake, nestled in the snowy forests near Government Camp. 







We’ll be staring at the trailhead for Maggie’s Trail #753, taking that to the intersection with Crosstown Trail #755, then on to Enid Lake. 







The gear list is a bit different for this adventure, so check below! If you don’t have snowshoes, there are several options for rentals in the area, including Mountain Shop & the Portland State Outdoor Gear Library.







Carpooling is definitely encouraged!
