13.5 mile round-trip, medium difficulty hike on Grasshopper Peak Trail. This springtime adventure will go to the top of the 3,379 foot mountain before the days start getting too warm. Revel in wildflowers, lush old-growth redwoods and, weather permitting, vistas near and far of the Mattole and Eel River Country, the Lassics and the Avenue of the Giants. See the succession of forest recovery since the 2003 Canoe Fire burned a portion of Grasshopper Peak’s southern flank. Bring lunch, lots of water, dress for the weather and wear hiking footwear. No dogs. Carpools meet at 8:00 a.m. at the Herrick Ave. Park‘n’Ride off Hwy. 101 South. Contact leader Ned for more info at 707-825-3652 (message phone) or firstname.lastname@example.org. Heavy rain cancels.
