Jo Jo Lake Backpacking Trip

Members of ACC Yukon are planning a backpacking trip in the mountains between Jo Jo Lake and Kusawa Lake from September 14-16.  Highlights of this trip include an amazing autumn coloured landscape, hiking to the summit of a former volcano with slopes of quartz, day trip to an area where caribou are often wandering, and hiking over to Jo Jo Lake.

Participants would need to leave by 4:00pm from Whitehorse to drive to the trailhead at Kusawa Lake.  Carpooling can be arranged.

Suggested Itinerary
Friday: Drive to Kusawa Lake from Whitehorse. Hike to base camp from Kusawa Lake (roughly 3 hours).
Saturday: Hike up to the summit of a former volcano.
Sunday: Day trip to Jo Jo Lake and the surrounding area.  Return to Whitehorse.
