Hike Plan: We will meet in the parking lot next to the Visitor Center at 8:45. We will follow the White Trail until it meets the Red Trail and follow the Red Trail along the creek until it again meets the White Trail. We will follow the White Trail until it meets the Brown Trail where we will turn left and follow it. The Brown Trail is a one-way trail going about 0.7 miles to Nickson Creek. When we get to Nickson Creek we will turn around, once again following the Brown Trail back to the White Trial. At this point we will turn left and follow the White Trail back to the Visitor Center.
