Upon meeting leader Mary Bridgeman at Lowell Ranger Station for a hike up to Shotgun Creek,
Mary offered to take another hike in the Lowell area — to which she received unanimous consent.
This trail begins at the Lowell Lake boat landing (past the store at Lowell), turn right.
It is a new trail along the Lowell boundary and along the lake.
It is easy and shaded, though somewhat of a rollercoaster, and we had to cross several small streams.
We walked approximately five-and-a-half miles, then decided to call lunch at an opening with a promise
of some sunshine.
In spite of this being the Memorial weekend, we counted only three boats on the lake.
It was a first-time trip and much enjoyed by all following the leader … Amy Clugston,
Ben Elkus, Ray LaFollette, Sandy Moore, Paula Vehrs (author) and Mary Bridgeman, leader.
