This hike will be an interpretive hike led by MK Gunn of the SJMA into an area of the Mancos River. We estimate about 3 hours of hiking time and 45 min each way drive time so bring lunch or substantial snack. From FR 561, this loop begins with a descent through lush vegetation down the Box Canyon trail. The descent is steep but has nice steps and water bars for assistance. After a bit more than half a mile, we will connect with the Transfer trail. This trail rolls up and down as we head upstream along the West Mancos River. About 2 miles in, we will begin our climb back up to the rim. Once we top out the climb at around mile 2.7, we will join the Rim Trail. This trail rolls gently and mostly downhill.
Carpool $5. No dogs.
RSVP non members only. Shelley Leader 259-9896 Shelley.email@example.com
