Join us for a Backcountry Women "Adventure Women" hike and/or snowshoe at Cabin Lake Trail!
Cabin Lake is an out and back trail that is scenic, featuring pretty views, a cute red foot bridge, and ends at the peaceful lake. There are multiple ups and downs along with gentle terrain. We will enjoy lunch at the lake, where there is a picnic table and firepit, with the option to snowshoe on the frozen lake. Snowshoes are optional on this trail, and the path is snow packed, so it can be hiked as well.
In order to keep group sizes small, we will be having two groups of 4 participants each plus a leader for each group. After the group introductions, one group will begin the hike and the other group will follow approximately 10 minutes later in order to remain distanced and separate. It is important to physically distance from each other on the trail and during breaks and lunch.
