High Lakes Trail from Summit Snow Park TH Towards Lake of the Woods

Participants: Elisabeth, Judy, Valerie, Anne Marie, Daniel and Richard

Six of us hiked the High Lakes Trail for about 7 1/2 miles round trip. We began on the ‘PCT feeder’ trail in the Sno-Park parking area off of Highway 140 and hiked just short of the Brown Mountain TH.

It was a lovely day to see Mt. McLoughlin in August without snow and experience, again, the Brown Mountain lava flows. We enjoyed the variety of open, rocky environs and periodic wooded areas with mixed conifer old-growth trees.

In the early 1900s, the 11-mile Cascade Canal was built to carry water from Fourmile Lake in the Klamath River watershed over the Cascade Divide to Fish Lake in the Rogue River watershed, and subsequently on to Medford. The Canal drops a total of 1,109 feet.
