The hike will depart from the Herman Gulch Trailhead and proceed up the Watrous Gulch Trail (FS 95). After about two miles we will leave the trail and head northeast up a steep grassy slope to the saddle between Mount Parnassus and Woods Mountain. At the saddle we turn northeast to ascend Woods Mountain. From the Woods Mountain the route follows the ridge to Mount Machebeuf, continuing down the ridge until intersecting with Jones Pass Trail (Continental Divide Trail). We will walk down the Jones Pass Trail until it intersects with the Herman Gulch Trail (FS 98), and follow this trail back to the trailhead.


Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
