Big Canoe, Buffet & Hike on Diablo Lake, North Cascades National Park
A very special event being offered this summer, this all day event is led by a North Cascade Institute naturalist. Explore the hidden coves and gorge of Diablo Lake by big canoes able to accommodate up to 20 people, while taking in the view of the mountain peaks that surround the lake. Following the canoe trip, there will be a buffet and a guided hike on a local trail. WNPS Members receive a discounted rate to cover the cost of the locally sourced buffet, guided hike, and canoe rental. Big Canoe Event information
