We will begin at the Hyde Farm Parking lot - bathrooms are open in front of the education building. Please come early if you would like to use them. We will head around the lake in to the woods and follow the lovely Mulberry Creek. It might be muddy and there are several small water crossings (plenty of rock hopping). Once we reach Johnson Ferry North we will head up to the parking area off Johnson Ferry Road. After this we will take the riverside paths which offer beautiful views of the river. Instead of heading back to Hyde farm the way we came, we will cross several of the large pipes on the pipeline to keep going along the river as far as we can. From here we will get a good look at the Morgan Falls dam and then head back up to the Hyde Farm Parking lot up the big hill I call 'Workout Hill'. This should bring us back to the parking lot from the opposite side we entered the park. We will re-enter the park to emerge from around the lake and back to the gazebo. We will be walking at a consistent pace of 3 mph + with no stops. It will be lovely and hot even in the shade so plan accordingly

If you want to do 10 miles total, consider the Gold Branch hike immediately following this one.
