By August 6, 2017 No Comments

We are leading a free hike along the Thimbleberry/Heart Lake Trail & Sawmill Creek Road Loop.  Meet at the Thimbleberry Lake trailhead at 9:00 AM on Saturday, August 12.

The hike is approximately a 3.6 mile, moderately difficult loop.  The hike will gain about 350 feet in elevation as you travel by Thimbleberry Lake and onto Heart Lake. The trail continues around the end of Heart Lake then down to Blue Lake Road.  Finally, we will return along the separated multipurpose path back to the Thimbleberry trailhead. Weather permitting there are beautiful views of the surrounding mountains along the trail and at the lakes, as well as the SMC Rd. multipurpose path along the sound.

Participants should bring their own water, snacks, and appropriate clothing for the weather. Any children or teens attending must be accompanied by an adult.

Hike leaders will carry first aid supplies & VHF radios.  For more information call 747-7244, or visit www.sitkatrailworks.org
