Gerdine Butte

Sunday, August 28, 2011
Leader: Scott Hovis
Hike: 7 miles, 1000 ft (Moderate)

Several of the people thought the trip should be listed as difficult because of a lot of off-trail walking. After leaving the trailhead you quickly come to Charlton Lake. This is a good time to look for Gerdine Butte. It helps for bushwhacking shortly up the PCT when you need to leave the trail going east. Hidden Lake is at the base of the butte. Keep looking for Gerdine Butte through the trees. It helps to have walking sticks because of some of the steep slopes. Bugs were not bad, especially compared to when I had recently been to nearby Waldo Lake where they were testy. There were delays on Highway 58 because of construction.
