This is the second trip to Lake O’Hara this summer. Lake McArthur was the first destination. The Route we took went passed the ACC hut of Elizabeth Parker and then followed the Alpine Meadows Trail to Schaffer Lake. Then up the headwall to McArthur High Level Trail. We then came back via McArthur Low Level Trail and back down the headwall to Schaffer Lake. Then it was on to Big Larches and Lake Loop West to Obabin, passed Mary Lakes. As the weather changed we came back from Opabin and stayed low by cutting back to the Lake O’Hara Circuit passed Veil Falls. The larch were at there best and although it was a cold day it was mostly clear, although a small cloud persisted over Lake McArthur.
- Note the GPS was only turned on at McArthur Lake.
