Description:

One more hiking trip before the gloom and doom of both winter and midterms sets in.

A trip for hikers with some experience, Wedgemount Lake is a 14km round trip, and a steep hike through a series of switchbacks up to a glacial lake. It's not a very technical trail, although there is a section with a scramble, and it's a full day hike. Definitely a difficult hike, but with some beautiful scenery at the top!

Marking this as tentative, based on the weather. If the forecast looks like rain by the pre-trip meeting, it will likely be cancelled.

I have one car, seating 5 people, and more are very welcome to come if we have more drivers!
