I'm planning hiking the Waucoma Lakes area on Sunday June 22nd with a couple of friends.  If you would like to join us, please reply to this thread or PM me for meeting location.  Our meeting time will be 8am.  

 

We'll be covering about 16.5 miles and 3170ft elevation gain.  Along the way, we'll pass four lakes, a scenic summit, and a WWII era signal hut.

 

Expect a full day.  We may stop in Hood River for food on the way home.
