On this fantastic 9.5mile loop the first 3 miles is all uphill...so once we get to Benton Falls we'll be nice and warmed up for some adventurous rappelling along the waterfall...you'll definitely need a selfie here + you're gonna need to be proficient in rappelling or you'll just be on the sidelines...hit me up before this event and I can help you out with that if you needed.
Otherwise it's pretty cut and dry (no pun intended). Beautiful mountain vistas, well maintained trail - that is until we get to the Clear Creek side...which is just a bit overgrown and somewhat hard to see at times...but the last time I was there was mid-summer, so hopefully the trail is not too overgrown! Either way it is an absolute beauty!
p.s. YES you might get wet on this one!

...again as this is part of the weekend of events, we'll be carpooling from "base camp" but if you want to single this event out alone meet us here about 15-20 minutes early at:
This maybe Pt. 4 of a weekend full of events, but you can cherry pick one or all of these events...you do not need to do them all...unless you want to.
BRING DRY CLOTHES to change in to after this one...especially if you're carpooling with someone.
Probably hitting up Tres Hermanos for dinner in Cleveland later that evening...anyone still around is invited.
