We will split into groups for moderate and brisk paced hikers. We will hike Cascade Creek at least as far as the third waterfall, but possibly to the seventh. It is 5 miles to the third waterfall, where the moderate group will get lunch and turn around. The trail peters out there, but continuing up further, and walking through a mucky marsh, will, after another 1.5 miles and 1000 feet vertical, bring one to a total of four more falls, including the tallest in the canyon. Extra credit if we go to the waterfall downstream of the road, which is arguably the prettiest of them all.
Carpool $4. Dogs welcome.
RSVP Chris Blackshear, chris.blackshear@gmail.com, co-leader Steve Schnarch.
