MON. JAN. 7—SHOWSHOE: TRILLIUM LAKE
Meet in the parking lot at 9:15 a.m. at the east end (look for grey Toyota FJ Cruiser). A Sno-Park permit is required. We will work our way up the western, then the northern sides of the lake, to complete the circuit; approximately 5 miles (we will not cross the dam). Trillium Lake Sno-Park is off Highway 26 southeast of Government Camp, opposite the Snow Bunny Lodge, in the Mt. Hood National Forest. It’s roughly an hour drive from Portland. Safety and other considerations: everyone will need to sign a Mazamas Liability Release Form. Step out onto Trillium Lake’s frozen surface at your own risk. During winter storms, traction tires or chains may be required to traverse Highway 26. Even though Trillium Lake is accessible, you still should stock your car with all the winter-emergency necessities, like blankets, snow shovel and extra food. Don’t snowshoe in the tracks of cross-country skiers, with whom you’re sharing the loop, and give snowmobiles plenty of berth. Email: David.R.Christopher@gmail.com with any questions.
