Matthieu Lakes Stewardship Backpack - August 28, 2015 - 8:30 am - Sisters
This will be a 2 night out backpack into the Three Sisters Wilderness to complete a wilderness stewardship project. We will be joined by a wilderness ranger who will give us instructions. Our mission will be to rehab a wilderness lake camping area. This will be a fun outing with time for socializing. We will also have the opportunity to learn and ask questions.
Restoration Plan: Armoring and naturalization of illegal campsites- Rehab work to finish our project from last summer. This trip will require about 3 miles of hiking each way. Elevation gain round trip is approximately 600 feet. We should plan on approximately 1.2 hours of hiking time from the trail head. We will camp in the Mattieu Lakes area for the weekend and head back to trail head on Sunday at 2pm.
We cleaned up a large structure at Yapoah Lake as well as rehab work at Matthieu Lakes. The rain and wind nearly blew us back home but we got it done. We also cut out one big log near the trail head. We also dismantled two old outhouses and packed out trash.
