On Saturday, August 26th the Mount Shasta Trail Association invites the public on a moderate 2.5-mile hike to Gray Rock Lakes above the south fork of the Sacramento River. While the trail is a bit of a scramble at times, the spectacular views and the pristine lakes make the effort well worth it. Four-wheel drive vehicles with high clearance are needed to get to the trailhead. We will be carpooling as there is limited parking.
The meeting time and place is 9:00 AM at 111 Morgan Way in Mt Shasta, in front of the Best Western Treehouse Motor Inn. Bring lunch, water and if interested, a bathing suit for a refreshing swim. A hiking pole is recommended. We will return by 4:30 PM. For more information call Joan Roemer at 530-926-0647.
