Note this a CMC Backpacking School Class trip.  Prior enrollment/registration in this school is required. 


We will hike North from the Chihuahua Gulch trailhead, reach a swampy plateau and to camp site among the woods.  Depending on weather, we hike up the valley in the afternoon and may do some scrambling.  Sunday we will do some navigation exercizes and head down about 2pm. Beautiful scenery of mountains, beaver ponds and often wildlife.  Bring your cameras


Bring gear for overnight stay: tent, sleeping pad, sleeping bag, stove and food to cook (in a strong bag to hang food on a bear bag line).  Also bring sturdy footwear, rain and wind gear, maybe a pair of sandals for creek crossings and your ten essentials.  Misquito repellant suggested but may not be needed.

Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
