Details

This hike is for RMOTHG members.



Starting at the Pine Valley Ranch Park TH we will take the Park View trail, the Strawberry Jack trail and the Homestead trail to the Raspberry Ridge trail. We will take the Raspberry Ridge trail to a high point with great views and interesting rock formations. The hike is all on trail. This is a scenic and interesting hike through parts of the Buffalo Creek burn area (1996). 

There is some friction slab on the Raspberry Ridge trail itself but no exposure.  Elevations range from 6900 feet to 8100 feet.



Please send me email or inform me privately if you have any medical issues that I should be aware of.



 




Notes

No Jeans.

 

This trip is technically exploratory since I will not scout it beforehand.  However, I have done it several times.
