Note: This is an "EXPLORATORY" trip. This means that there are parts of this trip, or perhaps the whole trip, that is new to your Trip Leader(s). However, they are confident that this will not be an issue.
This note is here so that you can make an informed decision. When a Trip Leader isn't personally familiar with a trip, there is an increased chance of things not going as planned and you need to be prepared. The Trip Leader may have additional details in the itinerary.


Please join me at Johnson Ferry North and South

Will park at Johnson Ferry South.  Head north on the trail which is only about one mile, cross over Johnson Ferry Road, hike about 5 miles at Johnson Ferry North, cross back over Johnson Ferry and another mile back to our cars.  

There will be a few creek crossings so your hiking boots may get a bit wet - nothing crazy, just muddy wet soles.  some of the adventurous may wish to cross the creek walking tightrope style on the pipes that crisscross the creek.  I will try to avoid the pipes but there are at least three and sometimes we might have to backtrack a long distance to avoid.  

Expect hike to be just about 7.5 miles - we will be able to complete in three hours.  Not a hard, super fast hike.  We will be meeting at SOUTH JOHNSON FERRY - which you'll find the entrance off Columns Drive.  

$5 parking unless you have a CRNRA annual pass in your vehicle  -  prior to hike go to this website and purchase a daily or annual pass

AOC limit on this event is 10 hikers - ocassionally (if everybody logs in at once and registers at once) the system has a glitch and may allow more than 10 hikers on the event.  If this does happen I am obligated to keep to the 10 limit and remove the last ones that signed up.  I get notification of time you register and to be fair the first 10 are the only ones that I keep on the roster.

Hiking Boots or Shoes

Event Directions:

Johnson Ferry South

Off Columns DRive (which is off Johnson Ferry Road)

Once on Johnson Ferry head south on Columns Drive, go less than a mile and the Johnson Ferry South will be on your left side.  (while on Columns if you pass Willow Knoll Drive on your right just go a little bit further and make the left into the parking lot.  If you are on Columns and you see Rivercliff Trace on your right you have gone too far - go back and then South Johnson Ferry will be on your right.
