Join Troop 72 for an introductory-level backpacking trip to Sheep Lake. This two day, one-night outing takes us to a pristine alpine lake on the Pacific Crest Trail near Chinook Pass. The route includes a 2.5-mile hike with moderate elevation gain.
The Sheep Lake outing is organized to be an introduction to backpacking for those with little or no backpacking experience. Prior to the outing, experienced Scouts will explain the gear and clothing required for backpacking in the northwest, and instruct how to use it. The location and route for the trip have been selected to provide an approachable taste of backpacking and the types of outings that Troop 72 engages in.
