Details

This trip was scouted beyond the first lake in July 2014. The conditions were not good at that time so the trip has been rescheduled to August. This trip requires STREAM CROSSINGS, WILLOW BASHING, SCRAMBLING AND OFF TRAIL HIKING. DO NOT REGISTER FOR THE TRIP IF YOU LACK THESE SKILLS AND DO NOT USE CHOCOLATE AS A COPING MECHANISM.

The cascading waterfalls at head wall of McCullough Gulch .were stunningly beautiful.

This hike was done by Backpacker Magazine Editor on Labor Day Weekend 2009.
He had his wife & children & small family dog with him when doing this backpack.
