This is not a beginners hike -- we are told this group hikes faster than the typical D2 hike

To qualify for this hike, you need to have recently kept pace with a D2 group and be willing to keep pace with this group.

Avg. Speed:  Faster end of Moderate (last 3 hikes were 2.4 to 3.1 mph)

Terrain: rugged creek banks and stepping stones with 18 creek crossings; bird area with grass and overgrowth


We will follow Mulberry Creek through a shaded forest and cross the Creek on stones 18 times. 

If the creek happens to be high, we might even get our feet wet.

The Creek hike is a "lariet" through the Hyde Farm County Park with the "noose" in Johnson Ferry North.  


Required Items to Bring:

water to stay hydrated for 1.5 hours on a hot day

Recommended Items to Bring:
Use our Event Checklists to make sure you have everything you need.

If you like hiking poles, bring them.

If you like sandals or water shoes for creek crossings, bring them.
