Hike, Headwall Lakes? Smith Dorrien

This has to be the most delectable valley on the east side of the highway, containing within its boundaries all the finest components of mountain scenery: blue lakes, waterfalls, meadows, talus slope and a karst pavement. The prerequisite to heaven is a jaunt through Smith-Dorrien's network of skiing and mountain-biking trails. Colour-coded logging roads make access to the valley easy. After this you follow an occasionally steep and well-used trail to the upper lake, which is also the scrambler's access to The Fortress. Hiking Distance: 7.0 Kilometers Height Gain: 457 Meters / 1500 Feet to Upper Lake High Point: 2341 Meters / 7680 Feet Difficulty Level: Moderate / Intermediate Carpool Departs at 8:00 a.m., please arrive 15 minutes before. The Club suggests a compensation of 6 cents per kilometer both ways for the driver(s). We will meet at the north end of North Edworthy Park.
