Indian Heaven loop

Post by drm » October 14th, 2018, 8:32 am

Drove to the Placid Lake trailhead for the first time in years. We did the big loop, past Chenamus Lk, continuing on the unofficial trail to Junction Lake. It got faint a couple times, when passing a quarter mile east of Elk Lake, and then in those huge meadows a half mile before Junction Lake. We then took the Lemei Lake trail past said lake and had lunch at Clear Lake, and heading out. About 12 miles on a beautiful fall bluebird day. Mushrooms were one of the highlights of the day.

So is the Chenamus to Junction the CCT or something else? Is the CCT what we ran into in that large meadow?
