Location

This hike along Three Mile Creek is through a dense deciduous and conifer forest and has multiple stream crossings. These crossings are shallow and often no more than a large step across to the other bank.  The hike also offers spectacular autumn foliage.  Parking is limited, hence the early leave time from the Wadsworth and Hampden Park n Ride at 6:30 a.m.   Start at 9,000 end at 10,000'+.  We'll hike up for a couple of hours and then come back down the same way.    Bring your shoes/boots in a bag as a courtesy to your driver.  Pay your driver $8.00.   Plan for an hour lunch and on a hot day, a foot soak in the stream.   The wildflowers change throughout the summer here & hopefully we'll see some Wood Nymphs.    Casual to Moderate Pace.
