Participant Information

We will access the trail to Saddlebag lakes and go up to camp to an alpine lake west of the lakes. Next day we will explore the riges around the area and climb Skimka or Trilateral or both descending to camp to the lakes north of Kaoham peak drainage. The next day we will exit through the Downton trail, 2km on the logging road to the car. If 2 4WD are available we can leave a car at the Downton site. It will be an open trip depending on weather and what people would like to do. This trip is for people who like exploring remote alpine areas walking off trail on Talus and steep meadow.
