Greenwater Lakes

Trail No. 1176


MAY 19, 2007 - A Mountaineers hike.    It was cool and rainy as we set off on this hike through a magnificent old-growth forest.  The trail follows the Greenwater River and passes two small turquoise lakes (Meeker Lakes) before it enters the Norse Peak Wilderness.  We ate lunch at a riverside campsite and explored several other campsites before returning to the trailhead.  On the return trip, the sky suddenly cleared and the sun started shining, giving a perfect ending to this wonderful outing. 

Approximately 5 1/2 miles roundtrip/500' elevation gain
