Contact Info phone 3978.  Please contact the coordinator in advance.
Description Park near the Mine Lake boat access and walk to Camp Homewood.  From there the route ascends the bluff to the north of Mine Lake with great views — and the weather forecast is very good.  The trail going up the bluff can feel a bit exposed.  This is a hike, not a climb, but do have good footwear and be careful.  The trail down is a regular trail and it loops back underneath the bluffs to the start of the steep bit.  You could go up the down trail, but don’t try to go down the up trail.
