Nature Hike North Cascade Creek

Tuesday, October 4, 8:30 am Register by Email

Margaret Mayer has been a hike leader and naturalist for AMC, Wilderness Ventures, School of Field Studies, NPS and others. She is leading a series of Nature hikes on Tuesdays. These hikes are mostly easy with gentle ups and downs and offer learning about trees, plants, birds, mushrooms, geology, wildlife, etc. Most will be approx. 4 miles RT but could be longer depending on the group and weather conditions. Bring your sketchpads and/or Field Guides!
We will start at a high meadow accessed by a little road off 550 just north of Cascade Creek. It parallels Cascade Creek Road on a higher terrace contouring through aspen groves and meadow to join Cascade Creek road which shortly comes to Cascade Creek trail. Round trip about 4 miles but can be longer if the group wishes to continue along the trail to falls. (8-mile round trip).
Carpool $5. Limit 12. 1 well behaved dog (include in RSVP)
