This is a 11 mile hike, to the south end of Avalanche Lake and back. The trail climbs through Avalanche passes, alongside impressive vast cliffs and descends to Avalanche Lake. The optional path alongside the lake consists of scrambling over boulders, up and down wooden ladders, and walking along wooden bridges called “hitch-up Matildas”. This optional part will depend on the needs of the group and the leader’s discretion. Either way the view of the lake and the cliffs should not be missed. Meeting at the Loj.
