New! Crater Creek Falls & Bushwhack Loop

Wednesday, June 12, 7:00 am Register by Email

A challenging on & off-trail hike with unique places and route. Starting at Andrews Lake, we’ll take the Crater Lake trail for 3.5 miles. Then we’ll go off-trail for about a mile, dropping 750 ft to the top of multiple 100 ft. waterfalls on Crater Creek. Our return route will depend on conditions, possibly hiking back up to return via the Crater Lake Trail, or preferably, an off-trail basically horizontal traverse across 4.5 miles of untouched pristine country, crossing 3 creeks and numerous small ridges. The bushwhack route is a little different each time. For experienced hikers. Plan on being out for a long day, lots of up and down, a few scratches, and a great time. Timing of the hike may be adjusted to catch the height of run-off./Route map available at https://caltopo.com/m/NGMN/Carpool: $6 Limit 10. No dogs. /RSVP Steve Schnarch 749-4478 ssalivedgo@gmail.com/
