Start the new year off in the mountains with a beginner snowshoe trip along the Pacific Crest National Scenic Trail. This is the second Twin Lakes trip of the 2012 season.

Elevation Gain: 800 feet
Leader: Jonathan Jelen
Location: Mount Hood National Forest
If you've never been on a snowshoe hike before, this is the perfect opportunity to give it a try. If you are a veteran snowshoer, bring along a warm beverage and show the newbies how it's done.
We'll hike through high elevation old-growth forests along the Pacific Crest Trail up to the first of Twin Lakes. The lakeside offers a pristine spot to enjoy some lunch and to admire the view (fingers crossed for a clear day and straight line view to the top of Mount Hood).
The snowshoe trip will include guided narration regarding forest ecology and preservation.
