Details

We will walk North from the Chihuahua Gulch trailhead, reach a swampy plateau and cross the valley to camp site among the woods.  Depending on weather, we hike up the valley in the afternoon and scramble to the base of a cliff.  Sunday we will visit a lake in the area and then head down.

Notes

Bring gear for overnight stay: tent, sleeping pad, sleeping bag, stove and food to cook (in a strong bag to hang on the bear bag line).  Also bring sturdy shoes, rain and wind gear, a pair of sandals for creek crossing and the ten essentials.

Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
