Hike Crater Creek Falls

Friday, June 23, 7:30 am Register by Email

A challenging on & off-trail hike. Starting at Andrews Lake, we take the Crater Lake trail for 3.5 miles. Then we go off-trail for about a mile, dropping 750 ft to the top of three 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 three 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.
Limit 10. Two well-behaved dogs on approval. Carpool $7.
