Events » Field Trip » SAVAGE LAKES WITH LYLE LAKE EXTENSION

Event Details

  • Location: Chapman Campground at 7:00 or trailhead at 7:30.

    Trip Leader: Mary Harris
    Reservation: Email Mary at smnharris@gmail.com.

    Mary has two nice adjoining campsites at Chapman Campground for those who want the full experience. (The campsites are reserved for July 21 and 22.) Campers will communicate and devise wonderful meals. Non-campers will need to leave Basalt by 6:15 a.m. You do not need to reserve both trips.

    Savage Lakes involves a beautiful but steep two-mile slow hike to the lakes. We’ll look for American Three-toed Woodpeckers, Golden-crowned Kinglets, Pine Grosbeaks, Clark’s Nutcrackers, Lincoln’s Sparrows and beautiful wildflowers, not to mention memorable scenery.

    Date: Friday, July 23, 2021, Lyle Lake

    Description: Lyle Lake involves a longer drive to the trailhead. If you choose only that one and do not camp, you will need to leave Basalt by 6:00 a.m.

    We’ll look for Canada Jays, Pine Grosbeaks, Wilson’s Warblers, other high elevation breeders and beautiful wildflowers. This 1½-mile trail to Lyle Lake starts at 10,000 feet in elevation but is pretty mellow.

    These two trips are popular and require advance planning and, in Covid times, need to be booked early.
