Details

This hike was originally scheduled to Harmonica Arch. The trip leader scouted Harmonica Arch on 6/18 and determined the trail is not safe enough for the abilities and expectations of most CMC hikers.



As a result, our destination has been changed to Wigwam Trail #609, out of Wigwam TH, in the northeast corner of Lost Creek Wilderness Area. This trail provides a less-crowded alternative to the Goose Creek Trailhead. Originally used to drive cattle from Webster Park, north of the Wigwam Trailhead, over into Lost Park. We will hike to the Beaver Ponds just beyond the intersection with Goose Creek Trail. This is a Mod B hike, at 8 miles and 1600'. Linda Lawson will be our co-leader.



Meet at the same time and place, 6:30 AM at The Fort.



Driving directions to be provided at the meeting place.  



  




Notes
