GREEN CREEK TO WEST LAKE
DATE: Sunday, July 30, 2023
LEADER: David Campbell
LEVEL: Strenuous due to elevation, mileage, and elevation gain and loss
DESCRIPTION: Hike along Green Creek to West Lake with magnificent views of metamorphic geology along the east side of the Sierra in the Hoover Wilderness of Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest. We’ll start at Green Creek Trailhead and hike towards West Lake with views of Gabbro Peak, Glines Canyon, Dunderburg Peak, and Monument Ridge. We will compare vegetation to the Saddlebag Lake and Twenty Lakes Basin trip the previous day. Total trail mileage will be 8.5 miles there and back with about 1,800 ft. of elevation gain and loss. We may secure a campsite at Green Creek Campground, but can’t guarantee availability.
MEETING PLACE: Green Creek Trailhead from Green Creek Campground
TIME: 8:00 am (earlier start in case of thunderstorms, may hike part of the way and turn back if high chance of afternoon storms)
