Trail Reports

  • Eric Kutter October 24, 2017 at 7:54 pmSnow started right at the TH sign. The double track has some snow but there is rideable dirt tracks from vehicles. Given that it just goes up from there, I expected the snow would just keep getting worse so I turned around. Even the lower Cultus Lake trail had quite a few patches of snow.
  • Mike Schmeiske August 11, 2017 at 2:45 pmAll clear south of Clover Meadow junction.
  • Alex Marganski August 9, 2017 at 7:40 pm5 trees down in the first mile or less, turned back and rode metwin to waldo
  • Joe Myers July 25, 2017 at 8:58 pmClear per email from Waldo 100k/PCTA. Need confirmation.
  • Joe Myers September 3, 2016 at 9:35 pmTrail cleared today.
  • Bonnie Phippen September 2, 2016 at 10:31 pmRode this on Wednesday, August 31, and still had deadfall. Counted 25 downed trees we had to climb over including some on Clover Meadow Trail. But still worth riding! Very fun.
  • Ryan Brown August 29, 2016 at 11:23 amHey ya Mike! I am working on updating a database/GIS map of that area. Can you specify if you rode this whole section of the loop? I recall the area you are talking about where the few trees were still down. I was working on clearing it for the USFS before I got hurt. Now office work...
 

Trail Description

Charlton Lake #19 travels from Lemish Lake to Charlton Lake, continues past junctions such as the Clover Meadow Trail, Charton Lake #3593, a spur to Found Lake, and the Metolious-Windigo Trail #99. It then ascends steeply to The Twins for a panoramic view of the Cascades. Expect some hike-a-bike portions on your way to the Twins.

Mosquitoes can be fierce until late summer.

    About 7 groups of trees down to the north of the Lily Lake Trail junction, then 2 down between there and the Clover Meadow Trail junction. Rest is clear.

    From the Twins, the trail has about 12-15 down trees above charlton lake. Below the lake only a couple more.
