Hike 1(A) Lyle’s Lookout 


We’ll have an enjoyable walk in the woods up to Lyle’s Lookout near Soda Springs.  This is a short approx. 3 mile loop with between 200-300 ft elevation gain.  Our trails through the mainly lodgepole pine forest are cross country ski trails in the winter. Most are wide, with a few narrow cross country sections as well.  If we time it right, we may have some nice flower displays.  The lookout area is small but we will get varied view of  Devils Peak, Snow Mountain, Red Mountain and Castle Peak near the lookout and turn around area.  A nice hike for a warm summer day.  Have lunch, water, and essentials.  No dogs.  Rain cancels. Meet in Auburn at Burger King, on Lincoln Way at Foresthill Exit off I-80 at 9:00 am.  Leader:  Sheila Toner 530-886-0673
