September 12, 1982
This was a 10-mile loop hike beginning at the parking area at
Scott Lake and heading northeast to Hand Lake and then northwest
up the Hand Lake Trail for two miles.
From here we hiked one mile up the north side of Scott Mtn
following tree blazes of a trail that has not been maintained in more
than 20 years.
Unfortunately, the weather turned showery for this portion of the
hike and we did not take any side trips to view any of the small lakes
in this area.
As we approached the summit of Scott Mtn it stopped raining, but the
view was still obscured by clouds.
We returned to the parking area by the commonly used route on the south
side of the mountain past Benson Lake.
The sky cleared somewhat and we even had some sunshine.
The eight participants in this venture were Helen Lynch, Paula Vehrs,
Harlo & Marty Perrin, Bob, and Ellen Tracy, Wilbur Groner
and leader Dave Predeek.
