Hike to Seven Lakes Basin — July 19, 2014

The Mount Shasta Trail Association invites the public to join them on a spectacular hike along the Pacific Crest Trail ridge overlooking the pristine lakes of Seven Lakes Basin as well as Mumbo Basin scheduled for Saturday July 19th.

This gentle to moderate five mile round-trip walk has superb long-range vistas. Participants will be able to see panoramas of the Trinity Alps, Trinity Divide, Mt. Shasta, Mt. Eddy, Lassen Peak, Magee Peak, Burney Mountain, as well as the granite cliffs of Castle Crags. We will have lunch at beautiful Helen Lake and those interested can take a refreshing swim.

We will be meeting at 9 am at 111 Morgan Way, in front of the Best Western Tree House. Besides hiking shoes/boots and sun protection, bring lunch, water and a bathing suit (optional). Expect to be back to town by 4 pm.

For more information call Joan Roemer at 926 0647.
