The Lopez Community Trails Network (LCTN) will be scheduling a series of hikes open to the public under the title “Go Take a Hike" in 2017.  Our hike schedule, under the direction of Bob Walker, will include a variety of destinations on- and off-island, including easy beach walks to more strenuous mountain hikes. These monthly hikes are held on Saturdays. Hikes are at a leisurely pace to encourage exploration and to experience the wonders of nature.

Sign up is by phone or e-mail with the hike leader. There is no expense except the sharing of transportation costs when we go off island. Please call Mike Moore (468-3622) or eroom@rockisland.com with any questions about any details.

AUGUST 12th • THE JOHN TURSI TRAIL

Join the LCTN hiking the John Tursi trail in Anacortes between Campbell Lake and Pass Lake, north of Deception Pass St. Park with a 3 or 6 mile option.  This historic area passes an old copper mine, a miners cabin and a view across Naked Man's valley to the site of Northwest artist Morris Graves’ former cabin.   Mostly forest with open views with a moderate 600 ft. of elevation gain.  See an online description here.  We’ll carpool on the 10:45 ferry and return on the 5:10.  The leader is Mike Moore (468-3622) Please call so we know how many to expect.

 

 

Due to scheduling conflicts (like this year's WALKABOUT) the PTARMIGAN RIDGE hike in September has been CANCELLED.  Maybe next year.
