Sisters Mirror Lake Sign Installation Hike - September 14, 2016 - 7:30 am - Bend
This is a 8 mile out and back hike into the Three Sisters Wilderness from Devils Lake TH along the Wickiup Plains trail to the PCT. You will see picturesque glimpses of South Sister, Kaleetan Butte and The House Rock through the trees. The trail climbs to over 6000 feet but the trail has been logged out. Elevation gain is about 600 feet.
Our task is to install new trail signs at 4 locations along the trail. You will help carry hand tools and signs. We will cut signposts from downed trees. On the job training will be provided. You will need to bring work gloves, eye protection (eyeglasses or sun glasses will suffice) and a small trash bag. You will need long sleeves and long pants for protection while working but not while you are hiking. We expect to return to Bend before 5 PM.
We will meet in the gravel lot next to the dog park on SW Columbia in Bend.
Please wear proper hiking footwear and bring a snack and a lunch, 2 liters of water, sun and rain protection, mosquito repellent, personal first aid kit, and extra layers. Make sure that you have the 10 essentials recommended for hiking. A mosquito net and a trekking pole would be useful. Please give drivers $2 gas money. No dogs please.
