A good beginners trip - a three-day trip means a layover day on Trousers Lake before returning.

Attempted to reach Baptism and Trousers Lake via Baptism Creek in late July 2006. Difficult route, as we ran out of water. Two inches of rain on July 31 may have improved water levels, but creek level was extremely low to nonexistent when we attempted this route.
