• 2.4 miles round trip, 500 feet elevation gain to the lake
(OPTIONAL) • 7.5 miles, 2,100 feet elevation gain to the lookout tower – we would make camp at the lake first, and then continue on to the historic Bull of the Woods Lookout tower
This trail rises through a beautiful old-growth forest, loaded with ripe huckleberries in August, literally as far as the eye can see, to a beautiful, quiet lake, nestled beneath the slopes of Pansy Mountain. The lake was also the site of an old copper mine, constructed by Robert Bagby, so named from the bright hued copper mined from the shaft.
NW Forest Pass (note, if you buy a day pass, you must purchase two!)
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.**
