This is an entry level backpacking trip designed to train people who have not done an overnight backpacking trip. Also, it would be nice to relax and enjoy a night out in the olympics
Lower Lena Lake is a short 3.3 mile hike in with a 1610ft elevation gain. This trip is Dog Friendly trail, so bring the furry friend!
We are very excited to be heading back to finish the rest of the trail renovations at Dickerson Creek Waterfall Trail. We began this project last month by clearing out a new section of trail, installing log steps in the slippery areas, and retaining ledges to help with erosion.
Please join us Monday, May 20th from 0930 to 1500 to help finish this part of the project.
Every month we lead a free and open to everyone community expedition. We do these hikes to get our community together and enjoy the great outdoors that the PNW has to offer.
This month we are going to Franklin Falls!
This hike is very easy, and well maintained. So feel free to bring young kids and strollers.
Dogs are allowed on leashes.
Carpool will be available. Leaving the LRS HQ at 0700.

Do you have some outdoor gear that you don't use anymore? Maybe it's just sitting in a box in your garage collecting dust and spiders.
Well we would love to take it and put it to good use!
Please keep any spiders at your house. We have enough of those already, we don't want anymore.
If you have some gear in your garage you just aren't using anymore, dust it off and give it a wash then bring that old gear and donate it to LRS! All gear will be used to take veterans on adventure expeditions.
