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.


This hike has been called a waterfall lover's dream. It is a challenging trail that can be uneven and rocky and we may face some wet creek crossings. Also, due to recent weather, be prepared to navigate blowdowns. 

All in all, a spectacular hike well worth the drive. 

Only those with recent D5 experience or above with the club should consider signing up.
