|Dawson Forest Wildcat Tract:|
Dawson Forest Wildlife Management area is comprised of more than 25,000 acres, ranging from foothills and mountain valleys to high country ridges and river gorges. Two rivers and several major streams meander through the WMA, adding scenic elements to a trail system rich with flora, fauna and unique topography. There are over 40 waterfalls in this WMA and 5 of the largest ones (ranging from 20 to 75 feet) will be visited during the hike.
The hike will be 12 miles long and have a total ascent of nearly 3,000 feet... 1,200 of that occurring in a single 1.5 mile stretch. Four of the five waterfalls we will visit are not along a trail, so visiting these will require about 1.5 miles of "off-trail" hiking - some of it being steep and strenuous. This hike is for people with previous D4/D5 hiking experience and those who do not mind, (preferrably enjoy) some "off- trail" hiking.
