Recurring Event:
One time event

Hike - Moderate

Persied Meteor Shower peak

Visit two pretty little lakes, set in an alpine meadow below the awesome wall of Tinkham Peak. We'll hike on the Twilight Lake Trail to the Pacific Crest Trail, passing Mirror Lake enroute. North of Mirror Lake, a short rough side trail takes to the tarns. Plan for an all-day outing with a 110 mile roundtrip drive to the trailhead, with 12 of those miles on a slow gravel road. The map for the day is the Green Trails Snoqualmie Pass #207.
