Patjens Lakes Loop

November 2, 1986

The trip around the Patjens Lakes loop was done under bright sunshine and a clear, crisp fall day with a hint of the snow soon to come. The cross-country skiers scouted the area in preparation. It was wonderful to leave the fog in Eugene and drive out of the pea soup to the autumn high country.

Eighteen hikers walked the loop and enjoyed lunch at the biggest of the Patjens lakes. The trailhead is well marked near the campground on the west side of Big Lake. The trail makes a loop and comes back to Big Lake for a short way beside the lake before returning to the parking lot. Hikers were Doris Allen, Susan Baker, Barbara Chinn, Marcia Danab, Gladys Grancorvitz, Miki Hutchison, Vi Johnson, Nola Kalez, Al Mandigo, Ruth McCalop, Carrie McClish, Marilyn Murdock, Royal Murdock, Leslie Proffit, Virginia Prouty, Nola Shurtleff, Art Wild and leader Mary Ellen West.
