Thirteen KHC members and guests attended the Spring Camp at Clearwater Lake. Everyone took care of their own camping arrangements, and good sites were found at Falls Creek Campground. The featured hike was the Chain Meadows Trail, which took much of the day.
The hike climbed to the Osprey Falls Viewpoint, then over the top of the plateau and up to the Easter Bluffs, over to the Clearwater Lake Lookout, and down switchbacks through old growth forest to the lake, following the Lake Trail back to the campsite. Although the whole trail is 17.5 km long, the surface was soft, the grades were forgiving, and the views were varied.
On the second day, we hiked Baileys Chute, then beyond to Marcus Falls, Myanth Falls, and looped back by West Lake. This was a popular route with lots to see.
