This is not a hike for a beginner. To qualify, you must have:
1. recently kept pace with a D2 group doing 3 mph and be willing to keep pace at 3 mph with the group on this hike.
2. recently kept pace with a D2 group doing a 500 foot elevation gain hike
3. not fallen twice in the same day on a D2 hike
For this hike, we will accomplish --
Avg. Speed: FAST - our last 3 hikes were 3.2 - 3.6 mph
Terrain: RUGGED; rugged creek banks and stepping stones with 18 creek crossings; bird area with wet grass and overgrowth
Elevation Gain: 413 feet
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.
Normally, the Creek hike is a "lariet" through the Hyde Farm County Park with the "noose" in Johnson Ferry North of the CRNRA.
However, temporarily, there is a construction fence obstacle so the lariot is currently a Y.
