Note: If anyone would like to carpool or follow me up to the trail head, we can schedule a meeting time. Please post in the comments section. 

What to bring:
Please bring a lot of water, sunscreen, snacks/lunch & extra layers as this is at 8100 feet and can be windy and cold at the Lake in October. This is a steep hike that will take us to Marlette Lake. We will be hiking at the pace of the slowest hiker. This will ensure that we do not get separated or lost on the trail. Please don’t hesitate to ask any hiking related questions!
