Between the West Mountains and Lake Cascade, this short but steep trail leads to the Skein and Raft lakes. This is a self-supported overnight backpacking project where volunteers will carry their own camping gear and food to camp near Skein Lake overnight.   

Trail:  Skein Lake Trail #132 

Itinerary: Due to limited parking and the rough road to the trailhead, recommend carpooling to Skein Lake Trailhead.  Meet at Campbell Boat Ramp Saturday morning. Hike in/ trail work Saturday. Camp at Skein Lake Saturday evening. Sunday, finish work and hike back to trailhead.  

Crew Leader: Tim Martin and Kris Miller-Martin
