Trinity Alps Septemberfest
Any interest in a group trip to the Alps? I am thinking about the weekend of Sept. 28th thru the 30th.
Love the Trinity. Grizzley Meadows from China Spring TH?
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.
I am interested. Love the Trinities.
I would be very interested, I have been wanting to get to the trinity alps for a while now.
I had a great time last October and definitely want to go with you guys again.
Glad to hear it Chris. Any suggestions from you on a suitable location/destination out there?
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.
Late to chime in, but always interested in going up there.
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.

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.
Count me in.
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. Bill
