On Friday we will hike in a short way to the river and setup our first camp. On Saturday we will complete our hike in (3.5 miles total with Friday covering part of this) and setup our base camp. From here we will day hike to Panther Creek Falls where we will swim under the falls (2 story water falls). We may take other day hikes depending on time and desire. On Sunday we will be hiking back out to the trail head (about 3.5 miles over mostly level trails).
