|We will hike to the bridge that used to cross over the yellow trail. After we see the damage done by floods to the bridge we will follow the yellow trail to the red. We will then hike the red trail to the white trail (about 4 miles) . |
Then, if people still want to hike more, we can follow the Blue trail where it meets the red and back for an additional 3 miles. Total miles for the day will be 4 mileswith option for an additional 3 miles. We will keep a moderate pace.
Note: there is a $5 parking fee...that is why we are doing the short carpool, to spread that cost around and have it just be a dollar or two per person.
|How to Get There:|
|Event Directions:||From the carpool, we travel back out to Thornton Road, turn left and over the I-20 bridge-it is 8/10ths of a mile to Blairs Bridge Road, on the Right (Big Car dearlership on the Right marks the corner). Turn right here and drive 2.1 miles, turn Left onto Factory Schoals Road, and follow this road until you start seeing the park and cross TWO lake bridges, before looking closely for the entrance to our park site, ON THE LEFT side of the road, Turn in here, and pay the park ranger if in the kiosk; if he or she is not there, drive in to leave payment in their envelopes at the park site, next to our trailhead.|
