Hikers at Twin Lakes Oregon by Chandra LeGue

Difficulty: Easy to Moderate 
Distance: 3.2 or 5.6 miles round trip
Elevation Gain: 300 or 800 feet
Leader: Chandra LeGue (Oregon Wild’s Senior Conservation Advocate) and representatives from Umpqua Watersheds
Location: Umpqua National Forest

Twin Lakes are nestled in the heart of the large roadless area included in the proposed Crater Lake Wilderness south of the North Umpqua River. The area offers a sampling of the best of the region: spectacular wildflower meadows, old-growth trees, mountain views, and ancient forests recovering from a 2017 fire. We’ll take the easy hike to the lakes, with an optional add-on to a rocky overlook above them.

Co-sponsored by our friends at Umpqua Watersheds.

Carpools will be available from Eugene and Roseburg.

The goal of Oregon Wild’s outdoor program is to connect our supporters to the places we work to protect and conserve. Our guided hikes and outings are led by staff members with experience in our conservation campaigns, knowledge about the natural world, and a passion for Oregon’s wild places and wildlife. Our programs offer an educational experience and a connection to advocacy for the places we visit. We strive to make our outdoor programs inviting and safe for everyone.

Your hike leader will get you additional information with specifics about a meeting time and location, difficulty level, and any other details about your hike after your register.
