    There's also a RAD sledding spot at Frog Lake! I'm bringing my flat sled for that if we choose Frog Lake.

    HEE!!!!!

    Well 6 miles is down and around both lakes not just to the lower lake.
    But im agreeing with most about Frog Lake.. just getting a general consensus.

    Pluses for Frog Lake.
    Easy hike in. Close to parking lot. Better for "new to winter camping" hangers.
    Restrooms are great to have.
    Picnic tables
    Fantastic trees
    Good day hike opportunities.. or maybe trip up to Timberline for lunch.
    Easy to get to from anywhere.
    Frog lake gets my vote.

    While I like the idea of camping at Twin lakes... not for a group hang.
    It is a 6 mile round trip in and out and may discourage new hangers or those that really don''t want the hike.
    The trees are way better at Frog lake and the area is bigger to fit a large group.

    Again... Frog Lake gets my vote.

    Clear Lake is my vote even though it's not on the list.

    You can park at the Skyline SnoPark and take the snowmobile trail in (I did this earlier this year...after doing the cross-country route with GaryR, I went back and found the easier route) about a mile and a half or so. There are privies that are open, and there are fire rings if you can find them in the snow, with metal grills. Lots of great trees to hang from too, and plenty of campsites to spread out of you want. Trail report here: http://wenthiking.com/users/140-rene...ckpacksnowshoe

    Not a lot of snowmobile traffic, and when I was there in February, there were maybe two other campsites full of people and they left shortly after we arrived.

    I'm hoping my work schedule works out so I can attend...

    Sounds like it will be me and my step son this time around. Hopefully we will have enough warmth stuff to make this happen.

    Thanks I will let you know. I think I might be getting everything for the hang prior. Might be looking for a spare tarp if anything for Tyler to hang under.

    We are definitely bringing a sled!

    I am making plans to drop by Rips and attach his skeg then finish up a few last parts for 2 others.

    I'm totally new to the hammock thing. Just picked up a Hennessy Expedition a couple of weeks ago. I'm super pumped for this trip. Now I just need to save up for a better sleeping bag....

    I know it's a way out but since I don't have a car, I'll need to try to hitch a ride from someone. I'm in NE Portland BTW.
