Any interest in a group trip to the Alps? I am thinking about the weekend of Sept. 28th thru the 30th.

Hobo Gulch trailhead would be a lot easier/faster to access. But agree that Grizzly Meadow and Lake are a worthy destination.

Longer hike from this end yes. But only a 1000 foot climb in the first 10 miles.

Hobo Gulch TH is a lot more accessible. 16 mi hike though. China Springs TH quite a bit further. Only 6 mi. hike. I would like to do Thompson Peak on Sat. which would make the China Springs TH look a little better. My 2 cents.

It really depends on whether we are going to be a large group again. There are so many great locations in the alps for a group to spread out though.

With the way it is going I imagine it will be a large group again. I would like to choose a trailhead that won't be a logistical nightmare for those who are coming a great distance and may be arriving in the dark on a Friday. Coffee Creek area perhaps?

Boulder Lake or Little Boulder Lake on coffee creek rd are both great group locations. I am not sure about logistics though, I suppose I could drive up there and check it out.

I have had a few requests to go back to the meadow as some would like a crack at the upper lakes.

And a general bump.

It's all good up there. You pick, Ken, and we'll follow.

sounds good on 06/14/2012 10:29:37 MDT Print View

The meadow is good because it has room to spread out and trees to hang, I'm down to go back.

I'd be interested in a return trip. Had a great time last year. A bit of a drive for me but well worth it.

I'll consider a return trip, too. Quite a drive from Portland, but great company and nice to get to a different area.

Hello BPL friends,
I would be interested in a Trinity Trek. I hiked to Grizzly Lake via China Creek TH about 10 years ago and would be up for another trip. Many areas to explore above the lake.
