Wall Lake, DH-2
George M., email@example.com
This is a moderate hike to a lake in the Rock Creek Recreational Area near Sprague. The area is largely an open grazing land, scabbed with basalt outcroppings, mesas, and a river running through it. The terrain was scoured by Ice Age floods leaving scattered lakes (Wall, Turtle, Perch, and a few others). The hike is about 8 miles RT with rolling terrains. We will start at the Escure Ranch trailhead, cross a bridge over Rock Creek, and hike on an old ranch road to Wall Lake. On the way back after lunch, we may take a detour to visit Turtle Lake. We will hike at a moderate pace (about 2 mph). Thus, this is not a TIE hike and not a photography hike. Bring along the Ten Essentials, lunch, and 2-3 liters of water. Be prepared for sun, rain, and cold winds. The trip is limited to 12 hikers and all participants will be vetted by the leader.
