Description

** THIS EVENT REQUIRES AN EVENTBRITE REGISTRATION**

The Eventbrite tickets will go live on Monday, April 1st 2019 at 10:00 a.m. (PST).

Due to regulations in the National Forest, we can only have a total pack size of 12, including the ambassador leading the event. In order to comply, we have to require each member attending this event register through Eventbrite. In the event you successfully register, and then are unable to attend, please release the ticket so that another member may attend. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Kristina directly!

TRAIL DESCRIPTION:

• 6.4 miles out and back, 2,065 feet of elevation gain

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.

**TRAILHEAD PASS**

At this time, there are no passes required.

** 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.**
